Leave a Comment

Transport for Wales (TfW) will begin railway line transformational works next month and move ahead with plans for the South Wales Metro, a recent news report in the local business media has been able to suggest.

The initiative will open a range of job, business, education and other opportunities for both people and businesses in the area.

As part of its £750m investment in the Metro, which includes £164 of European Regional Development Funding through the Welsh Government, TfW will begin works on 3 August.

James Price, TfW chief executive, said: “This is a once-in-a-generation project and through building the South Wales Metro we hope to help regenerate the economy in Wales especially as we enter the Covid-19 recovery phase.

“We now have significant physical infrastructure work to do to overhaul our rail network which was largely built in the Victorian era, to get it ready for our new faster, greener and more frequent train service.”

Access Control Software from Access Control Wales delivers comprehensive visitor monitoring functionality

Access control systems are just the right solutions to help construction companies increase the level of security on their various sites, especially since they’re visited on a daily basis by a large number of contractors, sub-contractors and other members of staff.

The powerful software supplied with all the Access Control Wales solutions has a familiar Windows™ interface, providing quick and easy access to information. It is also highly scalable, from simple door and registration point control, through to a fully computerised global Networked Access Control System.

Some of the most important features include:

  • Real Time (near) graphical display shows doors being opened / closed, those with alarm status set and forced entry
  • Doors may be configured to open automatically on fire alarms and lock automatically on burglar alarms
  • Anti Pass Back facility limits the same card being used by more than one person
  • CCTV Tracking of video clips showing “evidence quality” footage of forced entries, alarm events, users of Smart Cards gaining access or being denied
  • Door/Barrier Access can be limited depending on the persons’ roll call status
  • Resilient System keeps running even when certain cables are cut or damaged or PC networks fail
  • Sensor Monitoring to detect forced entry
  • Audit Trail showing who gained access (or denied) at any location at any time
