London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/17/2015 -- Members of the public walking near Reading Station can now benefit through a new route in the area – in the form of 'The Biscuit Tunnel' which has re-opened after many years of closure. It is in effect a passage which passes under the railway line at the point of Napier Road. Yet its interesting name dates back to when it was used by two little trains carrying biscuits to Reading Station from the manufacturers Huntley& Palmers. Now it is ready for pedestrians and has been given some modern updating too – including street lights and importantly, high-quality CCTV systems.
Although the 'Biscuit Tunnel' was closed for many years, it is thanks to modern technology and surveillance that the local authorities feel in a position to consider it adequately safe for the public. The CCTV is providing people with particular reassurance, especially as it serves to also deter anti-social behavior and congregations of youths. Combined with a proper pedestrian crossing on Napier Road, it is clear that 'the biscuit tunnel' is a piece of history all can safely enjoy.
Keen to comment on the importance of this news was Cricklewood Electronics, a business with extensive expertise in the field of surveillance and importance to the public. They frequently comment on industry news and a spokesperson had this to say:
"It is brilliant that the 'Biscuit Tunnel' has re-opened; a piece of history which can enjoyed by many. It also shows what good surveillance systems and CCTV can do; promoting positive public spaces where people feel safe to visit. Increasing attention towards the public befits of CCTV has seen systems increasingly installed in homes and offices too."
