I noticed today they started putting down wood around where the waiting room was. It looks like it is being re-built.

Judging by the work being undertaken today that is pretty much a given now.

The station will be restored to its original condition.

Dear All

Stopped off at Westall around 17:15 this afternoon to see the progress.

Work on the new waiting room is baiscally finished, but Mainco were doing some other work inside the building.

Replacement ticket machines are yet to be installed, and the ones on platform 2 were off - I hope they haven't been like this for 3 months!

Here's a pic


There are 9 more photos here, inculding some looking inside the building - http://s34.photobucket.com/albums/d113/tram3003/

Looks like the building was only opened yesterday afternoon as the fences were still there when I passed through Westall at 2:20ish

The ticket machines on platform 2 have seen switched off for a while.

Wow, that actually looks pretty good. When I went past a few weeks ago and saw the framework up I wasn't expecting to see anything like this as the result. I take it the signal bay is part of the original building that didn't burn down?
  RM62 Deputy Commissioner

The Signal bay section of the building was not damaged by the fire, the big waiting room/shelter bit was wrecked
