A Dublin shopping centre, that's one of the biggest in the country, is to introduce parking fees.
The changes at Liffey Valley will kick in before Christmas.
A major refurbishment of the car park and surrounding areas of the west Dublin retail hub is currently underway, which the operators say will make it easier, safer and less stressful to park at the centre as customer numbers increase.
As part of the project, a six-bay bus interchange is being built in the car park under BusConnects that will open next year. New lighting, walkways, and cycle lanes are also being installed.
But the changes also include paid parking that will be introduced during the final three months of the year. It will cost €2.50 for the first hour, with the next two free.
A discounted rate will apply to staff members but the exact charge is still being worked on.
Almost 200,000 people visit the retail destination every week, while there are 2,400 staff.
The centre says the parking charges are being introduced in line with Local Authority guidance and Greater Dublin Area Transport Strategy requirements.
The new ticketless, cashless system will use automatic licence plate recognition technology.
