I'm sure that for some time after opening and during the familiarisation phase, there'll be customer service officers on the stations and trains and in the long term there will have to be security staff.

I think that all but confirms earlier comments about form factor of the Metro rolling stock. Same platform height, almost the same width as current Sydney Trains rolling stock.

Do the platform gates span the whole 8-car platform or just part of it?

I couldn't tell because that was the only section visible. There are partition walls down the middle of the platforms. I doubt they would provide gates if there won't be carriages on the other side. Perhaps there is allowance for longer sets in the future?

The trains themselves are extendable to 8 cars when demand warrants it in the future. I noticed at Norwest that there were enough doors for the 6 car trains with just plain glass panels at the far ends of the platform where an 8 car train would actually stop.

I could see Chatswood's doorless section being all towards the southern end, as the platform access points are all to the north.

You’d want it in the middle to spread the interchange load over the whole length of the Sydney Trains service to the city.

Passengers at other stations can be encouraged to ride in the front 2 cars.

The platform seems to have been extended a bit based on a photo I took a while back at Chatswood when they were still installing the doors. In the old photos, the round thingy of the platform went almost right up to the edge but the position of the round thingy seems a bit further back from the edge here.

there are more escalators at the city end at chatswood, so I don't know why they would be concentrating on the northern end.

A job posting from Metro Trains Sydney seems to indicate they want to open it by early April 2019.
