About 3 weeks ago a new plastic roof was put on. It wasn't perfect but everyone was relatively protected. So imagine my surprise when I read that over Easter they intended to demolish the station and put up to temporary 3m shelters. Later on putting up a 5m shelter
Now I only get on the one train each morning, the 7:11. There are regularly 20 to 25 people waiting for this train. Where are they going to stand when its raining? 20 people will not fit under these tiny plastic shelters. Do these people have no concept?
The old station was about 12m long with a 3m overhang, that added a nice big roof that was able to accomodate everyone. These 3m shelters are a joke, and even the 5m one is not going to provide too much shelter in a howling Wellington southerly.
To put it in perspective one side of the old station was about 12m x 3m. These new shelters are 3m x 1m
God help us the first time it rains.
