Transport Security Solutions

When it comes to transport security for air and rail it’s vital to have the right solutions in place to keep passengers and employees secure.

Here at ATG Access, we have a long history of securing airports and railway stations throughout the UK and beyond, so we understand that it’s important to ensure that passengers feel safe as well as protected.

Railway Station Security

It is possible that your railway station could be the target of a terrorist incident, particularly if the venue is a hub for international tourism.

Railway Station Security

Pedestrians

Due to high levels of pedestrian foot flow, there is a desire to make railway stations as accessible as possible to visitors and to maintain a welcoming atmosphere. Perimeter security and access control measures do not aim to create a ‘fortress mentality’ or prohibit the effective flow of pedestrians in and out of an area.

Accidental Impacts

There is a balance to be achieved where those responsible for security are comfortable that there are robust, protective security measures available to mitigate against the threat of terrorism or accidental impact. With the high volume of traffic travelling in and around a railway station on a daily basis. There is also a danger of accidental vehicle impact harming the building or pedestrians.

High-security considerations

Counter-Terrorism measures need to stop vehicles from entering an area or from penetrating a perimeter laden with an explosive device. It is also vital to maintain the flow of visitors and workers in and out of a site; bollards achieve this ensuring a site remains protected yet pedestrian permeable.

Retrofitting security solutions

For some new railway station builds counter-terrorism measures are written into planning permission for the construction of new infrastructure. The need for counter-terrorism measures also extends to retrofit security. Key stakeholders have a responsibility for the security and safety of their customers and staff.

Airport Security

Airports are a key target for potential terror attacks and as such require a high level of protection.

Securing the perimeter

Considerations need to be made for both the passenger facing terminals and also the airside buildings and perimeter. Security measures need to ensure that only authorised vehicles are allowed to access airside roadways. The ability to search encroaching vehicles also needs to be facilitated where necessary.

Protecting Passengers

Passengers and terminals need to be protected from a potential terrorist attack as well as accidental vehicle impact. Security measures must not deter travellers or visitors but must blend into the surrounding environment.

Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Barriers

Multiple security barriers can be integrated into one system to achieve a specific security objective. These barriers can also be designed to work with additional security features or man guarding.

Security mix

Airport sites are traditionally vast with many security objectives ensuring passengers, workers and visitors are safe at all times. This normally requires a complex mix of systems and physical barriers. ATG has secured multiple large airport sites internationally and would be happy to go through your specific airport security objectives.
