March Networks will install video surveillance systems on 190 new trains for Metronet Rail, which will operate on the London Underground’s sub-surface lines (SSL).
The trains will be fitted with the Bombardier Sekurflo transit security system.
The video surveillance component of the system is jointly designed and developed by Bombardier Transportation and March Networks.
The first new SSL train will enter passenger service on the Metropolitan line in 2009.
Metronet Rail is investing an estimated $30 billion over 30 years to upgrade nine of the 12 London Underground lines.
The Sekurflo system will be used by operations staff to capture video for monitoring the safe and efficient flow of passengers along with supporting the efficiency of operations.
It will also incorporate intelligent video analytics to enhance the reliability and quality of the surveillance system.
