Rail Seating

Steps etc. are in place, how can it be affected? 

I guess it depends on the depth needed to accommodate the upturned seat. The rail seats take up very litttle room when compared with a “normal” seat.

It is space along the rows that is key. Ideally you increase it. At worst you don't reduce it.

Two ways of doing this:

1. Replace the existing seats (which take up a lot of space from front to back, i.e. 300mm) with rail seats that don't, The slimmest version allowed in England right now takes up only 100mm, i.e. 66% less than the current seats.

2. Don't add any new 'stadium furniture' that reduces the current amount of space, e.g. barriers that narrow the rows by 85mm

The images below strikingly show how much difference this can make. The red seats illustrate option 1, while the blue seats show the impact on space of no 2.

Hopefully City won't be doing a number two!

Well, unless they change all of the seats, it’ll be option 2. They’ll probably just put a rail on the back of the existing seat. 
As per this pic, the current seat layout is bulky, so once you’ve added the rail you’re looking very much like option 2, than 1.

Looking at your picture @Harry this option seems an awful consideration. Knowing how hard it is to walk past someone that gets up to let you past, these areas would be nigh on impossible to move around in

Given that everything about the redevelopment so far has been based on best practice and as space and comfort for spectators are prime considerations these days in any club's thinking, I can't see City doing that last option, as it would clearly neither be best practice nor enhance space and comfort. It would obviously impair both.

Let's pray the club seek advice from you.
