CCTV and signage improvements on the Looe Valley Line
CCTV cameras have been installed at Looe Railway Station as part of a project which has also seen improvements to signs and posterboards there and at Sandplace and Liskeard stations.
Funding for the £86,000 project has come from Great Western Railway and the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership by way of a grant from the Designated Community Rail Development Fund which is backed by the Department for Transport and ACoRP, the Association of Community Rail Partnerships.
Richard Burningham, Manager of the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership said:
“Installation of CCTV cameras at Looe station is a very positive step forward and will benefit passengers. The improved signs and posterboards will help further brighten Liskeard, Looe and Sandplace stations.”
Part of a Great Western Railway Customer and Communities Improvement Fund (CCIF), the scheme was one of ten projects in the South West to receive a share of the £2.25 million made available.
In the last year 10 projects in the South West have received a total almost £400,000 in CCIF funding.
GWR Station Manager for Looe, Sara Rogers said:
“We are committed to improving the journeys of our passengers, as well as the economic prosperity and social footprint of the regions and communities we serve. I am delighted that this work has now been completed, improving the way information is available for our customers, and improving the security of the station environment.”
