Newtown Station Platform Demolition

Newtown residents were notified of the commencement of Phase 3 renovations with the note below this week, promising the demolition of the platform buildings and construction of the temporary shelters.

Sure enough, this afternoon (Feb 19th) the machinery was in and the 1924 platform building was being carted away

You can also see the supports for the new entrance (concrete pillars) going up in the background in the photo above.

  1. Kinda sad, but it needs to be done.

  2. so the 'construction boundary' does include the area encompassing the tram shed and between?

    i wonder what this means for that space?
