New lighting and closed circuit cameras will be installed on the rural stretch of road in Surrey, B.C., where the bodies of four murder victims have been dumped this year.

Surrey Mayor Diane Watts says the new surveillance system will be installed as early as next week.

Police identified two bodies found last week on Colebrook Road in Surrey, B.C. — the same spot where two other bodies were found earlier this year.

The four murders, which police say are most likely not connected, have not been solved.

Watts says the system will cost $80,000 and the city is considering installing surveillance systems in other parts of Surrey.

"What we're trying to do is mitigate anything going on on that street but also stepping back and taking a broader look at any of the other areas. If there is something that we need to do in another area, we'll do that as well ... so the assessment is underway in a broader perspective," said Watts.

Watts says in addition to the new surveillance system, police will also be increasing patrols of the area and working with local residents.
