A long-awaited project to revamp Geraldton’s CCTV network — which includes replacing ageing infrastructure with vandalism and weather-resistant cameras — is more than half complete.

The City of Greater Geraldton provided an insight into the progress of the project, which is 58 per cent complete.

“Like everyone in the Mid West, this project is not immune to supply chain constraints caused by COVID-19 and the flooding in South Australia,” Mayor Shane Van Styn said.

“However, 47 out of 57 cameras have already been replaced or upgraded and it is expected the upgraded system will come online in March.

“This is a credit to the local company we are working with to deliver this project; it pays to shop local.”

The CCTV upgrades will improve safety in the CBD by replacing ageing infrastructure with reliable and resilient hardware.

The upgraded system also features vandalism-resistant cameras and infrastructure that will be better placed in locations where they are less likely to be affected by water and weather.

The works are being undertaken by local business Incite Security.
