Network Rail: Foxton Depot The Challenge Foxton railway station serves the village of Foxton, Cambridgeshire, providing connections between Cambridge and Londonâ€™s King Cross Station.
The cost impact and inconvenience of such actions had become a growing concern for Network Rail staff.
During unmanned hours, the station depot had become a target for trespassing, leaving the site at risk of vandalism, graffiti and theft.
A cost-effective method to provide round-the-clock security for the site was sought in a bid to reduce the impact crime was having on the depot.

In the first 12 months since installing the Site Dome, the incidences of trespass, vandalism and graffiti declined rapidly. The site has been free of any damage related to criminal activity.
Wireless CCTV also arranged the provision of monitoring for the depot at Foxton, with monitoring provided 24/7 or as directed by the customer.
Network Rail staff commented “I have been impressed with the quality of service we have received from WCCTV. Their equipment is fit for purpose and cost-effective, and their attention to detail and customer service is a huge benefit.”
