Network Rail's GNRP is a vast programme of improvements to transform train travel for customers in the North.
It will enable 2,000 extra services each week and allow 40,000 more passengers to travel each day. More trains with more seats, running more quickly and more reliably. Train customers are the immediate beneficiaries of improved transport links (or connectivity) between towns and cities in the North.
As new opportunities, including jobs, are created, and businesses get access to a greater pool of talent, local communities and the wider regional economy will feel the knock-on benefits of GNRP. This will boost growth regionally and nationally.
WCCTV were contracted by Network Rail as a specialist provider of body worn video systems to provide trackside workers with head-mounted camera units.
WCCTV provided Network Rail with the WCCTV Body Worn Camera (Connect)+, which delivers live transmission of video, alarms and GPS location information via wireless networks, including 4G, 3G and Wi-Fi.
The units were utilised to deliver multiple benefits onsite, including:
Safety and Security
Track and Structural Inspections
Mobile Operations Management
Health and Safety
