I’m grateful that I live close enough to Sunshine train station to walk there (takes about 15 minutes) but am far enough away that I don’t get too much noise from the Regional Rail Link project works.
We were at the station this morning trying to have a conversation on Platform 1 and it really was difficult to make ourselves heard.
I think an even harder thing to cope with if living or working nearby would be the drilling and pile drivers (?) – those deep thuds and vibrations must get to people who are trying to concentrate, sleep or just relax. Have you been affected? I note the old McKay admin buildings have scaffolding supporting some of the facade and a huge crack up the side – I hope that is not collateral damage from the works.
In other news, upgrade of Sunshine Station is continuing, with Platform 3 getting a new surface and British style paint job.
Also, a sign at Sunshine Station advertising free charter buses to attend the Anzac day dawn service shows that while they are prepared to go as far as Croydon and Mitcham to pick up people, if you are in the Western suburbs, you had better be in the Inner West!
