Central Corridor security: HD cameras, center-street design
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -
The Central Corridor light rail line is being designed for safety, with high-definition security cameras and stations positioned in the middle of busy areas to make riders feel safe.
The 18 stations on the line connecting downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul are being positioned in the middle of the street. Urban planner Allison Yoh told Minnesota Public Radio News if more people are around you, you feel safer.
Each light rail station will also have at least eight HD surveillance cameras that can tilt and zoom, and the West Bank station in Minneapolis will have 24 cameras to provide full coverage.
The Central Corridor line is expected to open for service in 2014.
