In the wake of the London bombings, senior city officials met in Rome last Saturday to hammer out new security measures for the citys transport network. Romes mayor Walter Veltroni discussed options with transport leaders and city police chief Achille Serra, before agreeing a package worth 13 million for improved surveillance on the underground network. This will go on 750 high definition, colour, digital video cameras as well as video intercoms and electronic entrance gates for all metro stations. Emergency procedure checks are now beginning in earnest with a view to resolving potential shortcomings in response to fires or explosions, ahead of a major disaster simulation scheduled for the end of August. Drivers and staff of the underground network have already received handbooks and training courses on what to do in the event of an emergency, transport leaders have stressed.
