Another link that you may like to see is from the London evening newspaper, at http://tinyurl.com/Holborn-trial.

In the U.K., the equivalent of SIAM, the IMA (Institute for Mathematics and its Applications), has just published a simple analysis of the two systems. If about 25% of users of the escalators walk, then the writer estimates that allowing them to walk on one side with standing on the right will clear 1000 passengers in 16 minutes. If you have two lines standing on the escalators, you clear those 1000 in about 11 minutes.

Holborn station handles 56 million passengers per year!

Unfortunately, the article with this analysis is not online
