LATEST: CCTV installed at Grenfell Tower

May 2, 2023


CCTV is to be installed at Grenfell Tower in a study to assist the development of a future memorial to the 72 people who died in the 2017 fire.

It will help the independent Grenfell Tower Memorial Commission in their development and design of a future memorial by understandin pedestrian, cyclist, and traffic movements in the area.

There will also be a transport assessment, which will contribute to the creation of a memorial at the site.

A Government statement said: “Understanding how the local area is used by pedestrians, cyclists and the overall traffic is a necessary and commonly-undertaken part of a design process like this.

“This will help to inform how people could best access the future memorial site, and move around the area that surrounds it.

“Evaluating how local streets and public spaces are used will also provide information on how links from important destinations – including underground stations, community buildings, shops, places of worship and schools – to the future memorial site should be strengthened.”

The study has been commissioned by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities which is providing administrative support to the Memorial Commission.

The work will be done by Tracsis, a specialist provider of transport surveys, analytics and traffic management. Tracsis has passed all due diligence checks, the Government claimed.
