Photos: Avondale Wrapped Up
But the station has been completely fenced off at Layard St and is patrolled by a security guard, who has no hesitation in shooing away curious people, peering through the fence..
Western Line trains continue to use the temporary Avondale station.
As explained in an earlier post, the new station, even when completed, will remain in its plastic wrapping until June. This is so other parts of the neighbouring rail network are sorted at the same time.
St Georges Rd was the site of intensive activity in December and January as a second track was laid through the area.
There was also similar work at Chalmers St and St Jude St, which have been completely double-tracked and upgraded with new pedestrian mazes and roading.
