Despite some lousy weather mid afternoon, 12 coping slabs were laid to finish off this section of the Platform 1 wall. Congratulations to everyone on site today and to all those people who have contributed to the task over the past 9 months or so. In particular Richard from Fairview Trading, without who's help we could not have achieved our goal. I was hoping to have some good pictures and video clips of the last slab being laid, but the weather prevented this. However there will be many more photos over the coming days, so look out for those.
Thanks goes also to the Friends of Broadway Station and members of the BAG Team who have already sponsored 45 out of the 52 coping slabs. Their names and home town will be recorded against each slab and be displayed in the new Station's Booking Office for all time . Thank you one and all.
