Installing platform screen doors can enhance performance

Issue 3 2010, Past issues  •  30 June 2010  •  Guillaume Lecoq, Public Transport Engineer, STIF (Syndicat des transports d'Île-de-France)

A number of underground networks worldwide are gradually installing screen doors at the edge of their platforms to prevent passengers from falling onto the tracks. The first platform screen doors to appear in Paris were those used for the VAL line built to serve Orly airport. These were followed by those on Metro line 14; both of these lines are fully automated.

The automation currently underway on Paris Metro line 1 is the first time screen doors have been installed on an existing line. In all cases, platform screen doors are used to ensure that the system remains impervious to intrusions – a function previously incumbent on train drivers.
