After the Valence station two years ago, the Riom – Châtel-Guyon station, near Clermont-Ferrand, is the second in the region to benefit from a reinforced security system. To combat delinquency, new measures will be put in place.

More cameras in stations for greater security, this is one of the new measures put in place at the Riom – Châtel-Guyon station near Clermont-Ferrand on May 24. Among users, opinions are divided. Aline explains: “That would reassure me. There would be fewer security concerns. We would be approached less.”

Adrien is more skeptical: “I have friends, I’m always with them, we’re never alone. There are always people at the station, I find it quite secure.” Faustine adds: “I don’t necessarily feel safe because we see a lot of news stories in the stations. Between the attacks, the snatchings…”

To reduce delinquency, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region is investing in a reinforced security plan. On the program in particular, more surveillance cameras, an increase in rail security staff and the installation of emergency call terminals, like the one already in place in Valence.

Emmanuel Fernex de Mongex, regional director of rail security, explains: “The installation of an emergency call terminal allows, in the event of a problem, to press a button connected to the regional transport monitoring center in Lyon, which also depends on rail security. When we pick up, we are connected to the camera so we see in real time what is happening.”

At Riom station, the project is being implemented for a 6-month experimental phase. The President of the Region Laurent Wauquiez (LR) indicates : “The idea is to get feedback from travelers, the SNCF, police teams, and for them to tell us what we can improve or give us new ideas. We test something and then improve it based on feedback from the field.”

The objective is then to expand to large stations such as Clermont-Ferrand for a total regional budget of 10 million euros.
