A total of 124 CCTV cameras have been installed in three different car parks in Bedford to improve safety and security. 36 CCTV cameras were installed in Lurke Street while 41 cameras are in use in Queen Street. An additional 47 cameras were installed in River Street car park. The move followed the renovations made to Allhallows and Lurke Street Car Parks in 2017.
Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson said: “The safety and cleanliness of our car parks are a top priority and we are proud that most of our car parks have been awarded a Park Mark. This acknowledges that the car park has been vetted by the police and has measures in place that ensure the safety of its users.”
He added: “The council is frequently looking at ways we can improve our town centre and its facilities. We have free parking schemes across our town centre car parks. All council owned town centre car parks have up to two hours free parking every Saturday and all day Sunday. Lurke Street and River Street Multi-Storey Car Parks are open 24 hours 7 days a week, with Lurke Street offering free parking from 6pm-6am.”
