One of ScotRail’s most important stations has been equipped with new automatic gates designed to streamline access to the premises while also bolstering security, a local news report suggests.
The gates were installed at the Perth station and are now operational. Most of the work took place overnight to minimise the impact on customers travelling through the station during the day.
Pat Callaghan, ScotRail’s director of facilities and building services, said: “Revenue protection and reducing ticketless travel have always been priorities for us because it is honest, fare-paying passengers who bear the burden of lost investment in Scotland’s railway.
“Ticket gates, which are part of our franchise agreement, are also proven to discourage anti-social behaviour and improve station security.”
Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles is the go-to company for upgrades in the field of access control and ticketing solutions, given our extensive experience in this field.
We supply a variety of access restriction and control solutions, all of which have been specifically designed to work either as stand-alone units or as part of an integrated system. All of these could come particularly in handy for securing the various access routes into the station.
