Don’t mind the gaps, there are none

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

AUS­TRALIA’S first metro train sta­tion with “no gaps” be­tween the sta­tion and the plat­form has been un­veiled, al­low­ing prams to be pushed straight onto car­riages.

The Syd­ney Metro North­west line, which will open next year be­tween Rouse Hill and the city, will fea­ture 15 au­to­mated metro-style sin­gle-car­riage trains run­ning ev­ery hour. Premier Gla­dys Bere­jik­lian vis­ited the newly com­pleted Talla­wong Sta­tion at Rouse Hill yes­ter­day and said the new sta­tion fea­tured glass screens pre­vent­ing peo­ple from falling onto the tracks — the first in the coun­try, adding:

“We’ve never be­fore had th­ese on-plat­form screens, that in­creases safety so much for our trav­el­ling pub­lic.”
