Yes it is normal to have a wider gap between running lines and sidings. Not only for the safety of the railway staff shunting the stock, but also to provide room for signal posts, point rodding and the likes.

Also, don't forget to ballast the main line with clean stone and the sidings. with cinders and weeds. That always helps to set them apart.
