The configuration of ticket gatelines can result in unnecessary queuing at a plus potential overcrowding. This project will develop and operationally demonstrate a gateline that is capable of automatically self-reconfiguring in order to maximise peak throughput and manage average throughput to prevent station overcrowding. The gateline will reconfigure the direction of individual walkways in a safe and controlled manner without manual supervision, freeing the staff at the gates to engage and support customers. It will remove the requirement on those staff to make operational decisions on gate configuration or temporary station closure, which if sub-optimal, adversely affect network capacity, safety and customer experience. This project will demonstrate to TOCs, supply chain and relevant stakeholders the commercial viability and operational benefits of this enhanced product offering.
