Brian outlined the Scope of Works that had been prepared and that they basically cover all the DDA (disability and discrimination) requirements. They will be widening and raising the platform by 400 mm, upgrade the lighting (to 40 lux) and replace the existing shelter with a new one. A Hearing Loop and 2 ramps will also be made to comply.
The work will take 10-12 weeks to complete after the contract has been let. This would look like it will be opened by about November.
They also discussed a clean up of the triangle of land that adjoins the station on Goodwood Rd, new signage, timetables and a community event to celebrate the opening of the station.
This is very promising news.
