Any benefit for inner city-train automation
« on: June 14, 2014, 01:35:51 PM »
To help relieve the congestion issues of the Citytrain network and allow more services is there any value in automating the inner city section to enable closer spacings?

We are probably talking Park Rd to either Bowen Hills or Eagle Junction and Darra to Petrie. Drivers remain on board and drive the train in the lower density areas.

I wonder if Rosewood would be a suitable pilot region seeing it can be basically isolated from everything else on the passenger network.  (Plenty of other stuff passing through though.)  We don't really have the equivalent of a Carlingford which can be 100% on its own.

BaT looks like going down with lyssavirus for a while.  I think they should just upgrade the system to full ATP (NSW has started = http://www.transport.nsw.gov.au/projects-automatic-train-protection )  ... this in itself will allow greater capacity and DOO.  If BaT recovers from the virus, then adding that into the existing ATP is a no-brainer ...
Half baked projects, have long term consequences ...
