Maroondah Journal: campaign for cameras

By April 21, 2009No Comments

The Maroondah Journal has reported on the continued efforts by local business people, police and State MPs to secure the installation of live-feed security cameras at Ringwood Station.

The installation of of closed-circuit live-feed security cameras would help prevent anti-social behaviour at Ringwood Station and have proved to be successful at both Lilydale and Croydon Stations.

Mullum Ward councillor Alex Makin said that while the cameras were important, the development of the station was crucial. “Access needs to be improved and the general look of the station needs an overhaul.

“The cameras would be a big part of that as they would help improve safety for the community.”

While the installation of security cameras are extremely important for Ringwood Station they should not neglect the need for the redevelopment of the station into a safe, accessible and easy to use transport interchange.
