Question

Residents have again raised with me the issue of crime and fear of crime at the underpass between Silver Street station and North Middlesex Hospital. This is used particularly by hospital staff and visitors. As this falls under TfL's jurisdiction, would you again consider installing CCTV?

Thank you for bringing the concern of the users of this underpass to my attention.

TfL is the owner of the subway and is responsible for the maintenance of both the structure and its lighting. CCTV cameras are already installed in the subway with the camera output monitored and responded to by the London Borough of Enfield.

TfL is aware of difficulties experienced by the London Borough of Enfield with the CCTV monitoring equipment and the screens not functioning. These are now programmed to be replaced in September.

TfL is working with LB Enfield to review CCTV provision in the subway and determine the most effective manner to operate and maintain it in the future.
