Demetry, James S.
This project, sponsored by Railtrack and South West Trains, addressed platform stepping distances between carriage exits and station platforms, and accidents associated with this problem. A centralized database was created which aided in relating the platform stepping distances to the number of accidents that occurred. Specified stations were ranked according to safety controls and platform stepping distances to identify hazardous platforms. This project was completed with hopes that boarding and alighting from trains will become a safer process.
