Leazes Park Safety Funding Investment

From Newcastle University Student Union News...

"Secured a £90,000 investment to improve safety in Leazes Park, this will be particularly helpful to first year students crossing the park for Castle Leazes and Richardson Road."
This is very interesting and I have not been able to find any more information on this, Northumbria Police has a mention of the attack on some students in the park on their site, however it would be interesting to learn more about this investment, who it is being awarded by and who will be doing the improvements. Hopefully it will actually bear fruit and park users will benefit. Could be that the shrubbery work we have seen this year has been part of this However its a lot of money to cut back shrubs...?
In my opinion the work on shrubbery will help safety also signage and lighting. The amount of rubbish and broken glass is also a problem.
