Metro design to prevent suicides – Deccan Chronicle
The proposed Kochi metro stations will have Platform Screen Doors (PSD), a first in the country, aimed at preventing mishaps and suicide attempts.
“The doors would restrict the public’s access to the rails by enclosing the stations in a glass cage and both the station’s door and that of the metro trains would open simultaneously when the trains stop. This way, mishaps due to overcrowding could be prevented. The only thing is that the system is a bit costly, but we’ve decided to include it for safety reasons”, said metro sources.
