CCTV digital and Wi-Fi upgrade to West Yorkshires bus stations

The Combined Authority is currently working to upgrade CCTV coverage to over 20 West Yorkshire bus stations. The £1.2 million improvement scheme will include new public Wi-Fi at eight of the region’s largest bus stations; Bradford, Castleford, Dewsbury, Halifax, Huddersfield, Keighley, Leeds & Pontefract.

This upgrade to a fully digital system is set to save the Combined Authority a five-figure sum every year, meaning it will have paid for itself in just four years.

Over 200 new Bosch HD cameras, connected to a high-speed CCTV fibre network, will replace the current analogue cameras. The roll out of the five-year scheme will also see improvements made to the Combined Authority’s CCTV monitoring centre in Leeds.

Additionally, bus station staff will be equipped with new personal mobile radios to ensure staff and customer safety, and create better communication channels across the bus station network. 

Further benefits include reduced energy usage and continued compliance with the ‘Surveillance Camera Code of Practice’ by the Home Office.
