NWRL Emergency Egress

A number of people have expressed concern about how passengers would escape if there was a problem with a train in the tunnel.  Some people seem to think they might have to walk several kilometers to reach the next station, and imagine walking in possibly a smoke filled tunnel.

The NWRL project confirm that there will be safety access tunnels at least every 300m along the twin tunnel system, so if there is a problem then passengers will be able to exit into the other tunnel where vehicles can be provided to carry them to safety.

This blogger is exploring a number of such specific concerns, and invites comments or questions from the public on such issues.
