Transport. The Midland Metro Alliance consists of the West Midlands Combined Authority, which owns West Midlands Metro. The Metro runs from Wolverhampton to Birmingham City Centre, being extended up to Five Ways and Edgbaston Village. 

What Was The Client Looking For:

Midland Metro Alliance were looking for a security provider to service the new tram stops in Edgbaston, as part of the Westside Metro Extension, at Five Ways and Hagley Road, stopping at Edgbaston Village.   

How Did Watch Systems Ltd Help:

Watch Systems Ltd project managed and installed two public space cameras, to cover the new tram stop areas, working closely with Colas Rail (part of Metro Midland Alliance). The two public space cameras are monitored locally by Edgbaston Estates Security, with a direct link to West Midlands Police, to provide the travelling public with confidence and reassurance.
