There is actually wasted floorspace underneath the longitudinal seats.

You could actually push the walls of the trains and therefore the seats to be outside the floor plate of the train, so the train walls (with the seats inside) actually overhangs the platform. This would really reinforce the idea of stand back from the platform edge.

With the longitudinal seats further away from the transverse seats you could probably get two aisles of people standing between the transverse seats and the longitudinal seats, instead of only the one aisle I predict in this arrangement.

Are the tunnels, bridges, signals/signs/power poles and other things far enough away from the track to allow for such an idea?

Judging from the artists impressions it does seem as though the C series will be slightly taller & wider to take advantage of the loading gauge I think that’s docker might be referring to

I couldn't lay my hands on a PTA loading gauge outline this morning, but the ARC infrastructure one is at the link below (both standard gauge and narrow gauge):

ARC Infrastructure Rolling Stock Outline

The platform edges are set at a fixed distance from the edge of the static loading gauge (there is a dynamic one out there, just not to hand right now) so if the side of the carriages are widened to go over the platform edge, the carriage no longer fits within the loading gauge for the network.

Pretty sure that the width of the current carriages are 2900mm, which is the width of the loading gauge already.

Cheers,

Matt

The final report into the failed cross passage/sink hole on the FAL has been posted online. Looks like the solution is to hone down the disrupted concrete tunnel segments and install a new steel lining inside the damaged concrete lining.

Thornlie Station in that picture looks a bit like a High School built in the 60s.

I'd rather a brick overpass like Armadale, but it's all about $$$ these days. There's also a new name for the bike shelter: Pedal 'n' Park. Wouldn't have thought we needed a new name for a bike shelter, or car park for that matter.

Looks like the Thornlie station works will be relatively minimal. It's basically the existing structure with an overpass linking the platforms.

Still think its a missed opportunity not having a station at Jandakot / Karel Ave. Huge employment centre developing there.

Major link between Armadale and Mandurah rail lines delayed until 2023 after $200m cost blowout
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-12-1...owout/11807852

Last I heard PTA were trying to get BP to pay for the pipeline relocation, on the basis it was at the end of its design life, guess they lost that one.

I've seen the Newest drawings when it was out for tender

Thornlie is a big upgrade, a lot of the existing station gets demo'd and extended with carpark works and new overpass similar to the east perth station upgrade

Cockburn not much happens the platform is extended north but only half the width of what it is currently the other half is used for the trains to pull in. It has a bus shelter type kind of setup so it won't be weather proof

Perth staduim is also having one of the platforms doubled in length.

As for the BP pipeline it needs to be relocated first, and this is unlikely to start until April next year at the earliest.

Unfortunately the opposition is right, nothing but failed promises from this government. The only thing they’ve come through on is stopping Roe 8, which isn’t a good thing.
When their run is over what will people remember them for? A couple new train stations, maybe? Thank you Colin, for a world class stadium and station, Perth city link connecting the city and northbridge again, Elizabeth quay, bringing the river and the city together again as well as changing the face of the skyline.
I just hope we can at least get some sort of light rail going from this dud government.

They can't keep spending the way he did, the way Colin spent it wasn't feasible to continue

Some serious money being wasted here. Yanchep extension just encourages the sprawl north and I fear the TCL will be poorly patronised outside of stadium events.

This $1.25 billion could have gone towards creating a far better solution for Ellenbrook.

I was thinking the same thing a second before I read your post.
