SADDLE BROOK, N.J. - Henry Bros., the wholly owned integration subsidiary of Diversified Security Solutions Inc., has been awarded a $1.6 million contract to provide security systems below the former site of the World Trade Center in New York.

As part of the contract, Henry Bros. will install security and communications solutions in the new underground train station that connects New York and New Jersey. Among the solutions to be installed are closed circuit TV, access control and alarm monitoring, as well as information display screens.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey began work on the $544 million restoration project in August 2002. Construction on the temporary station, which at one time saw 67,000 people pass through each day, is scheduled to be completed in December.
