Extra eyes on regional train stations

Member for Oxley Melinda Pavey has announced a $2 million contract has been awarded to roll out 200 extra high definition CCTV cameras at public transport locations across regional NSW.

22 train stations and coach stops will be upgraded over the next year with high definition CCTV, ensuring customer safety and assisting police with investigations when necessary.

 

The additional CCTV cameras will be accompanied by new Customer Help Points which will also be installed as part of the work.

 

The Customer Help Points, when pressed, will connect customers to a 24/7 emergency support centre where real-time assistance can be provided.

 

“Once a customer presses the Customer Help Point, the motion-sensitive CCTV cameras will send the vision straight back to the person helping the customer,” Mrs Pavey said.

 

Stations to receive upgrades are:
