Bosch Security Systems is helping to ensure London stays safe and sound this summer as hundreds of thousands of additional people visit the city. Its security and communication systems are watching over key travel networks and providing information to passengers.
On Eurostar services that run through to St Pancras International station in London, Bosch cameras are providing uninterrupted surveillance footage from inside the tunnel, ensuring the safe passage of 26,000 people and 50,000 tonnes of freight every day.
In London itself, Bosch technology can be found across the transport network. Many of the London underground stations have Bosch surveillance cameras which provide high definition imagery and give peace of mind to London tube travellers. For example, Woolwich Arsenal Docklands Light Railway (DLR) station uses Bosch’s sophisticated public address and emergency warning system.
“The cameras provided by Bosch in the Channel Tunnel and the public address system at Woolwich Arsenal DLR station are just two examples of the Bosch technology that is helping to keep London safe and secure this summer,” said Peter Fouquet, president of Bosch UK. “Bosch has operated in the UK since 1907 and is an established presence within the London and wider national transport networks, providing safety and security systems that protect both people and the infrastructure itself.”
