Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on 29 June 2015 inaugurated the Integrated Security System (ISS) at four railway stations in Mumbai comprising Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), Dadar, Kurla and Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT).

The ISS was installed with a total cost of 21.72 crore rupees. The ISS is aimed at improving security on Railway premises, ensuring safety of the people and averting terror attacks.

The system will monitor passenger activities through a network of CCTV cameras at six railway stations comprising CST, Dadar, Kurla, LTT, Kalyan and Thane. It has a total of 118 CCTV cameras that will beam the live images of railway stations under its coverage on six monitors.

The ministry also inaugurated a modified foot over bridge (FOB) to facilitate passenger movement at Diva and another FOB at Vithalwadi apart from laying the foundation stone of a multi-level two-wheeler parking at Thane.

Once completed, the project will take up the parking area to 3000 sq meter from 700 sq meter. While the work of the first phase of the project was completed in June 2015, the second phase is expected to be completed by December 2016.
