A 30-year-old woman was killed in 2011 at the Kocherpark stop – and then another death at the same stop in June when a 54-year-old man died.

Engineers will examine all stops and could widen platforms, add new markings and look at any other improvements that could be made.

But a spokesman also added it is important that all road users, including pedestrians and passengers, have to be aware of the dangers.
