INTEGRATED PLANNING OF RAILWAY OPERATIONS AND STATION LAYOUT TO IMPROVE PEDESTRIAN LOS

INTERACTION WITH RAILWAY OPERATIONS

In railway and metro stations, pedestrian traffic volumes are certainly influenced by train arrival and departure timings, during which some peak flows can occur. In this context, in addition to a level-of-service analysis performed using static analytical methods, the proposed optimization approach has enabled to relate the presence of pedestrians and their corresponding traffic peaks to the train timetables, providing optimal solutions for the maximization of number of users within the station while respecting the limitations due to social distancing. As for example, such approach has been adopted in two relevant nodes of the Italian railway network, namely at the Roma Termini station and on one of the platforms of the railway station connected to the Fiumicino Airport.
