MORETON Bay Regional Council is expanding CCTV at Caboolture and Centenary Lakes in Queensland at a cost of $A800,000.

MBRC has gone to tender for work, which includes design and construction of the Centenary lakes CCTV network in Caboolture. Works include the installation of conduits, pits, poles, cameras and directional drilling to King Street fibre network connection within the Centenary Lakes Park Sporting Precinct at Caboolture. The tender closes September 24. 

According to the Courier Mail, council will install 22 extra cameras in Redcliffe and Caboolture at a cost of more than $A800,000. Council allocated funds in its 2015/2016 budget which was handed down earlier this month. There will be 9 new cameras installed at Redcliffe’s Bee Gees Way, which is being upgraded. Another 13 will be placed at Caboolture’s Centenary Lakes Precinct and the Caboolture Sports Centre. Meanwhile, cameras at Redcliffe’s Settlement Cove Lagoon and at the Burpengary Community Sportsgrounds will be upgraded.

The Courier Mail reported Moreton Bay mayor Allan Sutherland said it was a worthwhile investment.

“Infrastructure upgrades and additions to council’s CCTV network are an investment in the safety of our community and the visitors to our region who make a positive contribution to the local economy,” he said.

“The investment, which has been made possible with assistance of the Australian Government, will help to make the Moreton Bay region an even better place to work, live, play and visit.” ♦
