The last 300m of approach from Sandymount to Syndey Parade never exceed 50km/h and once the platform is reached the train automatically slows itself to about 10km/h
That seems to make sense, although it seemed like the train was moving at full speed when the driver passed me in Sydney Parade.
With this type of operation, the stairs is pointing in the wrong direction.
Passengers should also be encouraged to move down the platform.

Is this to allow you get off at the crossing point / exit? Surely the most efficient use is to have people distributed through the train, using all train doors and tehn trickleing to the exit?
