MTA's in slow-mo on hi-tech cameras

The MTA's most far-reaching anti-terror project has fallen behind schedule while the budget has ballooned by $185 million, the Daily News has learned.

 

"Every time they tell us how many cameras have been installed ... I always shake my head and say, 'That's it?'" said MTA board member Andrew Albert, who sits on an authority committee that gets security updates behind closed doors.

 

"This doesn't seem to be moving quickly. To me, that's not acceptable."

 

Plans for the electronic surveillance program, first unveiled in 2005, call for thousands of cameras and sensors feeding information to a series of command centers, the MTA has said.

 

The cutting-edge technology would detect intruders in off-limits areas and packages left on train or subway platforms - and trigger alerts to authorities, officials have said.
