PKP Polish Railway Lines will deploy 1500 surveillance cameras on Warsaw-Gdansk rail line until the end of the year, as part of the largest project in the area of rail infrastructure monitoring activities. The value of the investment is over PLN 20 million (EUR 4.5 million).
The new rotating cameras surveying station platforms, lifts, gangways will help the deterrence and detection of perpetrators, and will prevent thefts and stealing attempts.
The monitoring centers in Warsaw, Gdansk and Iława will ensure additional support and the mobile monitoring centers will help SOK, the railway police, to survey movements on the railway network.
Currently, the video surveillance system includes 1400 cameras monitoring 114 facilities associated with passenger transport. CCTVs also cover over 1000 railway-crossings, 130 facilities and GSM-R masts.
