      From a design perspective, there are certain things that we keep in mind when designing train stations and footbridges near train tracks to make sure that this doesn’t happen. For example, that the platforms are designed to give enough space away from the tracks. Or we design handrails/parapets along footbridges to be a certain height. These are based on design guidelines that we follow to produce safe designs.
