Security improvements are being made to a popular route from today.

Work to upgrade the CCTV cameras along the Honeybourne Line will take place for the next two weeks.

The initial work, soft excavation, will concentrate on the section between the Waitrose footbridge and the underpass, in the direction of the train station. Once the excavation work is complete the contractors will move on to work on the individual cameras for the remainder of the time. The upgrade work will be confined to the section of the Honeybourne Line between the footbridge adjacent to Waitrose and the train station.

Councillor Andrew McKinlay, cabinet member for development and safety said:  ‘’I am pleased that the work to improve safety along this popular route is now underway. I am sure that the cameras will act as a deterrent to those considering any acts of anti-social behaviour in an area used by families, cyclists, walkers and runners.’’

The footpath will remain open the public throughout the duration of the work.
