Network Rail and Paramount Security Group has joined together to combat crime and improve safety on the rail network. In Britain alone over 1.3 million train journeys and over 100 tonnes of freight is transported by rail every year.
Network Rail has identified that improvements and efficiencies can be made by the use of automatic gates and CCTV. Paramount Security Group has supplied a range of security products to the rail industry. The objectives of the project were to reduce the risk to the general public, where railway lines are in close proximity to public access points. In addition to the physical measures which were deployed, CCTV is being provided to allow central control rooms to view the remote locations.
A Paramount Security Group spokes person commented "The project was proving to be a worth while investment in security for the rail industry"
