Lancashire County Council has switched to Videalert systems for bus lane enforcement throughout the county. 

The council decided to standardise on Videalert’s hosted CCTV enforcement platform so it could manage multiple contravention types using a single platform. Marston Holdings group companies Videalert and NSL were selected to deliver the new enforcement solution.

Peter Bell, parking and regulation manager at Lancashire County Council, said: ‘Our old cameras were seriously impacting on the effectiveness of our bus lane and ongoing parking enforcement strategy. Bus lanes improve travel times for people using public transport, and the Videalert system enables us to meet our compliance objectives by delivering a consistently higher level of performance, as well as providing the highest availability. The platform also delivers better value as future-proofing is built in and additional camera assets and enforcement applications can be cost-effectively added as required.’

The council has initially installed Videalert bus lane cameras in 15 locations. The ONVIF-compliant, digital HD cameras went ‘live’ at the end of last year, capturing high-quality images to minimise discard rates, increase productivity and help reduce the number of appeals.
