CCTV Installed In A4 Underpasses
Harvard Hill and Chiswick roundabout subways first to go live
Newly installed CCTV cameras are now live at the Harvard Hill and at Chiswick roundabout subways that run under the A4.
The cameras, which are linked to Hounslow Council's central CCTV control room, mark the next stage in the installation of CCTV in all of the underpasses in the Chiswick section of the A4.
The Harvard Hill and Chiswick roundabout sites were highlighted as the priorities by the Council based on advice from local Crime Prevention Officers.
Commenting on the project when it was first announced last year, Insp Dave Osbourne said, "Crime in the underpasses under the A4 are thankfully few and far between, but many local residents have voiced their concerns to me regarding feeling unsafe in that type of environment."
He continued, "Fullers Brewery generously took the lead in financing CCTV at Chiswick Lane which was very well received. This new installation will make people feel safer and where offences do occur will assist us in identifying suspects."
