Quality upgrade

This parking facility actually has two owners, The Bank of Oslo and Q-Park. When you enter the parking facility, you first pass the bank’s parking section after which you will find the Q-Park parking spaces. This makes the Q-Park ‘Quality Upgrade’ visible every day as only the Q-Park part has been upgraded.
