1. 316 Bryanston Drive Clean-up

Before the end of this year, a major operation at 316 Bryanston Drive is being planned. We need your support to remove the illegal occupiers on the site, as well as from the half-built bridge which has become derelict and is an eye-sore for our suburb. Residents surrounding the property have already committed R140 000 to the operation – we need your help to ensure CAP can secure the property and keep hostile occupiers at bay while the property is being secured.

2. CCTV Roll-out Plan

The BRCF Volunteer committee is happy to announce our suburb’s security technology roll-out plan. Similar to the design communicated at the AGM, we have agreed costing with CAP on the various camera points. Costing at this stage has been done conservatively, assuming no power (i.e. a solar+battery installation for each camera) at the locations as well as no fibre connectivity. As the individual camera points are being erected, these costs will hopefully be reduced if we find alternatives to the above (e.g. if a resident is willing to power the camera).

As our funding increases (and technology changes), we will keep you posted. Watch this space!

  1. Marvelous work and a big thanks to the BRCF committee for their tireless effort and dedication to our community – Skye, River Club Downs complex

  2. Can the Committee explore the option of deloying the cameras in conjunction with CAP Smart Booms, such as are employed in Sandown/Strathavon. This would require a driver to stop and press a button to gain accesss facilitating capture by camera.

    1. Smart booms are on the long term plan. The rollout plan is prioritized in terms of security value add vs cost. Smart booms are very expensive and subject to traffic impact studies. It’s also currently not technically in line with the JRA rules, and you risk dismantling after massive capital spend. Lastly, our area is a high volume traffic through flow area, which adds complexity.

  3. Thanks BRCF Committee for all their tireless efforts and to CAP for their advice on these options. I have been to a couple of the meetings with CAP and the quality strategic and tactical input is amazing. The way they plan to make use of the cameras to fight crime is so well thought out – I am so impressed and I feel so much safer due to their presence – and all without having to create Fort Knox all around us!!

  4. I have just donated to the LPR cameras – only comment is that Payfast would not let me give a reference for credit card payment. Anyway LPR helps us all wherever the camera is located on our borders.
