Greenwood Station platform shelter extended
Passengers using Greenwood Station now have significantly better protection from the elements after the station's platform shelter was extended.
A $1.8 million project, in which local company LKS Construction extended the platform shelter by 50 metres to 60 per cent coverage, is now complete.
The project also involved installing extra CCTV cameras and better lighting to improve passenger safety.
The roof panels were installed using a crane in a series of lifts which took place in the early mornings between June 29 and July 3. One lane was closed on each side of the Mitchell Freeway while the panels were lifted into position.
Where possible, assembly work was carried out off-site, or completed after-hours to minimise passenger and traffic impacts.
Greenwood Station, which was opened in January 2005, attracts about 2,200 boardings on an average week day.
