Project Description

As part of a larger overall design project for TTC, LEA was retained to complete a functional analysis and security system design for TTC’s Transit Expansion Department (formerly Transit City) Eglinton Crosstown LRT Conceptual design project.

The project included security system designs and functional requirements for three prototypical multi-level LRT stations as well as CPTED based reviews of station floor plans and layouts for street level entrances, mezzanine level, and LRT platforms. LEA worked with the design team architects, and engineers to compete the design for presentation to the TTC.

Design references and LEA subject matter expert personnel were involved to develop the design basis as well as a review of industry best practices. The resulting design package formed the basis for TTC’s implementation phase of the ECLRT project.

System designs included technologies and subsystem components for the following:

  • CCTV Surveillance Systems
  • Access Control
  • Monitoring and Management Systems
  • Monitoring and Detection Alarms

The usage of the CCTV Surveillance is designed to complement the security management system with live video monitoring locally and remotely while providing a video archive of events through video archiving. This surveillance system is also designed to optimize the coverage of each station with the least amount of CCTVs, while strategically deploying CCTVs in potential crime areas as a deterrent.
