A £1.2m project is being devised to modernise and relocate CCTV systems in Greenwich amid fears the police station where it is currently based will shut. Under the initial proposals, around 550 cameras on housing estates and systems in the Woolwich and Greenwich foot tunnels will be integrated together.
The council’s current control room will be moved from Woolwich police station in Market Street to council offices at Calderwood Street.
Along with improving the CCTV systems part of the reason given by council officers for the move is an expectation that the Met will close the current building down in the next five years. Cabinet member for environment and community safety Councillor Maureen O’Mara has agreed the project should be undertaken by company Eurovia Contracting.
It is expected to take six months and be completely operational by the Olympics next summer. Around £900,000 in funding has been secured so far, much of it from Section 106 funds.
