Anti-social behaviour at Albert Park Railway Station will now be caught on camera with the installation of new high definition CCTV cameras as part of the State Government’s $4 Million Station Security and Amenity Upgrades Program.

“We are adding to our existing network of more than 1,000 CCTV cameras to combat crime across our public transport services, alongside the intelligence-based work of the Public Transport Safety Branch and DPTI safety officers.” Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Stephen Mullighan said.

In addition to the installation of latest CCTV technology the upgrade has also included:

  • New lighting on platform and in the car park
  • New public address system
  • Resurfaced platform with new asphalt
  • New station shelter
  • Improved access
  • Way-finding tactiles (DDA compliant edging tiles)
  • Improved access including DDA compliant pedestrian access ramp
  • New fencing

Improvements are designed to meet the needs of the tens of thousands of passengers who use the Grange line each year, and to encourage higher public take-up of rail travel with the provision of better security and public access features.

“More Police and more DPTI safety officers are being backed up by the latest CCTV technology, which enables a rapid response to anti-social behaviour and other incidents that may occur across our passenger transport network.” Mr. Mullighan said.
