The Great Northern Railway Company are enlarging and making many necessary improvements at the local railway station to meet the requirements of the rapidly increasing traffic.
Several thousands of pounds are being spent in this work.
The station master’s house is being turned into offices, and new waiting rooms and other offices are being erected.
One of the long platforms has been covered in its entire length, and this, we believe, is to be devoted to the use of passengers waiting for the outgoing trains all of which will depart from one or other of the sides of the platform.
The whole of the open space at the entrance to the platforms is also being covered in, and this will form an excellent protection from the weather of the crowds that assemble here on evenings of busy excursion days.
This work is now being rapidly pushed forward and it is expected that it will be completed by the time the heavy excursion traffic commences.
