Passenger safety and security is of paramount importance to TfL
Delivered as part of the TfL's £10bn 5-Year Investment Programme, the new set of improvements will provide reassurance to the 21 million passengers travelling on the two routes leaving London Liverpool Street every year: to Shenfield via Stratford and to Chingford, Enfield Town and Cheshunt via Hackney Downs.
This is part of TfL's safety and security improvement programme. The package includes:
On-train improvements include CCTV in 61 four-vehicle trains.
Station improvements at London Fields, Bethnal Green and Cambridge Heath stations including:
Improvements for people with disabilities including handrails, bespoke seating and induction loops at ticket office windows have also been delivered at several other stations.
This is a significant step in TfL's safety and security programme; as a consequence of the on-train CCTV project, the entire One suburban network now benefits from CCTV coverage.
London Fields, Bethnal Green and Cambridge Heath stations now benefit from new safety and security enhancements.
The improvements at London Fields station were delivered by TfL and One in partnership with the London Borough of Hackney.
Ian Brown, Managing Director of TfL London Rail, said:"Passenger safety and security is of paramount importance to TfL and we are working closely with train operators like One and local authorities such as the London Borough of Hackney to provide safer and improved rail services across London.
"We hope the delivery of these improvements will encourage more people to use rail in London."
Dominic Booth, Acting Managing Director of One, said:"One is pleased to be working in conjunction with our partners at Transport for London and the London Boroughs, by investing in upgraded trains and stations across our network.
"Improving the on-train and station environment is a key element of our investment priorities.
"New CCTV and information provision systems, better lighting and accessibility improvements are a major factor in providing reassurance for passengers, and in attracting new customers to our train services."
Mayor of Hackney, Jules Pipe, said:"London Fields station forms a vital link for many residents to jobs and services across London, and I welcome these latest improvements which will enhance the safety of rail passengers.
"As Hackney is not yet on the Tube network, investment in over ground rail lines is particularly important, and I shall continue to push for improvements to the services and infrastructure provided."
