CCTV Work Begins at Eastwood’s Glen St Carpark

Work has begun on the installation of CCTV cameras and additional lighting at the Glen Street carpark in Eastwood.
City of Ryde Council received $200,000 from the Federal Government’s Safer Streets Communities Grant to implement the project for CCTV camera installation in the Glen Street Carpark and surrounds.
Ryde Mayor Clr Jerome Laxale said that this community safety project was a high priority for Council and that he was glad that the $200,000 project was under way.
Mayor Laxale said: “A total of 13 CCTV cameras will be installed that will monitor all key access points throughout the carpark and its surrounds. This is a larger number of cameras than originally planned for and is a result of our determination to achieve the best value possible from this grant.
“A complete upgrade of lighting, including light poles, is also part of the project to improve security and sight lines through the carpark precinct.
“This project will deliver a safer environment for the Eastwood community and will assist in adding to the attraction of the town centre as an eating, shopping and social destination.”
