BATHURST Regional Council is seeking tenders from suitably qualified and experienced contractors for the construction of Bathurst CBD CCTV Stage 1.

Works include the supply and installation of 13 cameras (pole and building mounted); approximately 400m of fibre network, including conduits and pits; 500m wireless link, video monitoring systems/software, power supply and associated networking works.

According to Councillor Alex Christian, Bathurst Regional Council has committed to funding the project, which will see 15 to 20 CCTV cameras installed throughout the CBD, after missing out on NSW Government funding.

Cr Christian said it was good to see council appreciate the value the project by committing its own funds in the 2018-19 budget, but disappointing there was no support from a higher level of government.

The cameras are likely to be installed in William Street, Russell Street, Howick Street, George Street and Machattie Park, with council intending to have both fixed and PTZ cameras – the solution is also likely to be monitored by police and council staff with strict protocols governing use of video footage.

Cr Christian said it was a win for Bathurst residents, who will benefit from the added security CCTV provides.

“It is a basic level of security that the people of Bathurst deserve,” he said. “I certainly think the community will embrace the CCTV and so will the businesses that have been screaming for it.”

Cr Christian plans to continue lobbying council to apply for federal and state funding, so more cameras can be added to the network after the initial roll-out, specifically to provide coverage at the lower end of Keppel Street.

The tender for the initial installation closes at 4pm, Tuesday November 6, 2018.
