Is there a good reason why on track 1 they can't platform 8 cars and open all doors on 8 cars? They only open 6. On Track 2, 8 sets of cars doors open and track 1 has just about the same room with space until the gate back there.
Today with crowded trains from earlier Jamaica suspension, it was ridiculous that they couldn't open 8 cars of crowded train on track 1. This is safer, having people walkup on moving train as cars shift side to side?
However, on that platform, in that sapce, there is no gap for cars 7 and 8 on track 1. There is no reason why they shouldn't open those doors. New regulation should apply on an individual platform basis.
In a day and age where people are becoming less responsible to their own personal awareness, the safe thing would be to keep the rules as they are. When people fall in said gap, a greater portion than not will not take responsibility for their own actions.
The gap on the eastern most car has a big gap on track one. The curve is the opposite way on track two therefore there is no gap. If you are in such a hurry to depart the train, why don't you get on in the front?
