|The project will see Servest Security provide unique mobile CCTV solutions, manned guarding, and mobile patrols
Facilities management provider Servest Group has been chosen by Balfour Beatty as the security partner for the Plumstead to Abbeywood joint Network Rail and Crossrail project.
The two-year project will see Servest Security provide unique mobile CCTV solutions, manned guarding, and mobile patrols to provide comprehensive security coverage to the two-mile route in south-east London. The project works include the installation of two new overhead electrified Crossrail lines, modifications to several bridges and a major remodelling of Abbey Wood station in addition to the creation of a new Crossrail platform.
Servest Security has considerable experience protecting Crossrail projects having worked with the company for several years. The company has designed a bespoke security package for the ever-evolving and complex needs of the Crossrail project.
Crossrail is currently the largest construction job in Europe, and the biggest infrastructure project ever undertaken in the UK.
The aim is to improve travel across London by reducing journey times, easing congestion and offering better connections. Set to open in 2018, Crossrail will increase the rail network by 10 per cent and support significant regeneration.
“We are delighted to be working on this project and look forward to working with Balfour Beatty over the next two years,” said Michael Lamoureaux, Managing Director of Security at Servest. “This project further concretes Servest Security’s partnership with Crossrail as the main security supplier across London.”
