Under the new Safe City Policy the State Government has committed $4.9 million ensure the city remains a safe place to live and visit.
The commitment means:
- more closed circuit television cameras
- improved lighting and
- increased monitoring.
The initiative creates a safer pedestrian corridor of laneways from the restaurant/market precinct of Gouger Street, the newly redeveloped Victoria Square, through Hindley Street to the Adelaide Railway Station/Riverbank/Adelaide Oval precinct.
The new cameras will add to units installed by the Adelaide City Council in Victoria Square, cameras added to the new Adelaide Oval itself and new cameras as part of the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.
