Connection: Project manager Peter Bender is overseeing the installation of Shepparton's inner-city safety camera system.
Underground boring has started to create space for the fibre cables that will connect Shepparton’s inner-city safety camera network.
Initial drilling and site testing was completed last month.
From this week new works will take place in the central business district for the fibre-optic cable and connection of all 26 cameras.
Greater Shepparton City Council said the work would take several months to complete. The project includes the supply and installation of closed-circuit television cameras, and the associated pits, conduits and laying of fibre-optic cabling which will provide a live feed to Shepparton Police Station.
The Safer City Camera Project is designed to reduce antisocial and criminal behaviour and improve public perceptions of safety in Shepparton’s central business district.
City of Greater Shepparton Mayor Jenny Houlihan said the council was working with Victoria Police to ensure compliance with all privacy and legal regulations were taken into account when the cameras became operational.
‘‘Residents can now see work above ground in Shepparton’s CBD. This is great for our community to have another safety measure in place for community members and to help reduce antisocial behaviour,’’ she said.
The camera network was to have been completed in September last year, but the process was delayed because of problems with contractors meeting a single tender process for complete design and construction.
The tender process was restarted, but the expected completion date of December has also passed.
Greater Shepparton City Council, Department of Justice and Attorney-General’s Department funding has been provided for the camera network.
