Newly installed CCTV cameras are now live at the Harvard Hill and at Hogarth roundabout subways that run under the A4.

The cameras, which are linked to Hounslow Council's central CCTV control room, mark the next stage in the installation of CCTV in all of the underpasses in the Chiswick section of the A4.

The Harvard Hill and Hogarth roundabout sites were highlighted as the priorities by the Council based on advice from local Crime Prevention Officers.

Hounslow Police will be given live access to all Council CCTV cameras including these new ones.

Speaking about these latest developments Cllr John Todd told ChiswickW4.con, "Im delighted that my Chiswick colleagues endorsed and pursued this project, I know residents and users will be reassured by this new CCTV coverage."

"Public safety is always paramount," he added.

Commenting on the project when it was first announced last year, Insp Dave Osbourne said, "Crime in the underpasses under the A4 are thankfully few and far between, but many local residents have voiced their concerns to me regarding feeling unsafe in that type of environment."

He continued, "Fullers Brewery generously took the lead in financing CCTV at Chiswick Lane which was very well received. This new installation will make people feel safer and where offences do occur will assist us in identifying suspects."
