Graffiti Control is the most crucial part of the Recover, Care and Repair Regime
from GTECH Strategies Limited. In 1996 a survey of one fifth of the London Underground
fleet revealed that 41% of all deteriorated panels were attributable to graffiti.
Independent annual surveys reveal that rail passengers do not feel comfortable on
trains that have been attacked by graffiti vandals. For this reason London Underground

systems that enable all graffiti to be removed.
