Transport for London starts CCTV modernisation

Transport for London (TfL) has begun a £22.6m project to revamp its closed-circuit TV (CCTV) infrastructure using internet protocol (IP) technology. The transport body has signed a 10-year contract with supplier Easynet for the design, build, testing and support of a wide area network (WAN) that will connect all the organisation's cameras that are used to monitor traffic.

Transport for London (TfL) has begun a £22.6m project to revamp its closed-circuit TV (CCTV) infrastructure using internet protocol (IP) technology. The transport body has signed a 10-year contract with supplier Easynet for the design, build, testing and support of a wide area network (WAN) that will connect all the organisation's cameras that are used to monitor traffic.

Some 900 existing CCTV cameras will be upgraded onto the new WAN and a suite of communications services for traffic operations will also be introduced under the deal.

According to the contract award notice, the systems will be mainly fixed-line communications services and are expected to be available on a "call-off" basis during the contract, with no obligation on TfL's part to support future traffic applications.

TfL hopes the implementation will improve the flexibility of the surveillance system and access links to third parties, such as the Metropolitan Police and London boroughs, will also enhance the traffic flow of London's road network.
