The Government of Victoria in Australia has completed upgrades to Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras at almost all Melbourne train stations to increase public safety.
Under the programme, more than 2,300 digital cameras have been installed across 185 metropolitan stations in the last three years.
The Melbourne stations, which are being upgraded as part of the Level Crossing Removal programme, will be equipped with the same digital cameras after completion of the ongoing work.
The cameras replaced the antiquated grainy analogue technology to deliver improved resolution and widescreen views.
“These upgrades will provide clearer vision to deter potential offenders, ultimately creating a safer train network for everyone.”
They are equipped with forensic zooming, improved low-light capabilities and capture a greater area.
The installation of the new cameras is aimed at deterring crimes at the stations.
Additionally, installation of security cameras at the stations is expected to further boost the sense of safety among passengers.
Victoria Minister for Public Transport Melissa Horne said: “The overwhelming majority of the 590 million journeys taken on Victoria’s public transport network each year occur without an issue, this technology will help us further reduce incidents happening.
