NSW trains stopping with enough precision to meet doors on the platform?

Central Station platform at nightToday’s Sydney Morning Herald has an article about the ways the state government is looking to ‘ease peak hour train crush‘. Some of the things though I just don’t see working. Like the intention to:

introducing ”screen doors” between platforms and trains to alleviate Sydney’s worsening peak hour crush

They have this in Japan, but I don’t think it would work here. It requires the trains stop so the doors are always in the same place. Not sure they can achieve this level of accuracy.

Have you ever see trains stop so the doors are always in the same place on the platform?

No. I didn’t think so.
