Chaddy to enforce face covering rules

Thu, 23 Jul 2020 12:00 am By Admin

Chadstone Shopping Centre will actively enforce the new Victorian rules on wearing a face mask or covering, which came into effect at 11:59pm on Wednesday 22 July.

Centre security staff will be questioning any shopper without a face covering. Should the shopper have a legitimate reason for not wearing a face covering, they must be able to produce evidence (such as as medical certificate). Otherwise, shoppers will be directed to a store to purchase a face mask. Refusal to comply will lead to the customer being directed to leave.

Chadstone rolling out Frogparking parking management system Thu, 02 Jul 2020 12:00 am By Admin


Frogparking has been chosen by Chadstone to upgrade their existing parking management system.

Back in 2012, Chadstone installed a system called ParkAssist. However this system was only implemented in multi-level carparks. The ParkAssist system will be scrapped in favour of a new system supplied by FrogParking.

Earlier in the year, new parking sensors were installed in Uber and taxi ranks as a trial. Now, the system will be rolled out in full.

The new Frogparking system includes solar powered sensors for open ground parking. A smartphone app will also be made available to guide shoppers to the nearest vacant parking bay. Currently the ParkAssist system has been deactivated, with the old vacancy signs out of operation.

Previously, there was no technological way of guiding customers to free spaces or enforcing parking time limits in locations such as the outdoor 'QuickPark 90 minute' zones.

COVID testing moves to Malvern Valley Tue, 30 Jun 2020 12:00 am By Admin

The pop-up COVID testing clinic at the Chadstone Coles P2 carpark has been relocated to near the golf course at Malvern Valley, adjacent to Holmesglen Institute.

The move comes amid concerns around traffic congestion spilling over to Warrigal Road, long queues, long waiting times as well as people proceeding to shopping after they are tested.

By moving to a nearby site, it reinstates several hundred carparking spaces and eliminates the traffic congestion issues. Being further away from the shopping centre means people are less likely to go shopping immediately after taking a test.

The new site is open daily from 9am - 4:30pm.
