It's not as if the railway has not had previous experience of major building projects in the past. Kidderminster Station, the Engine House and the Carriage Shed were all completed without any major problems. Whilst we don't know the final outcome, its pretty evident that something, somehow has gone badly wrong. What we need now is no more bull**** like 'lessons have been learned' but a full disclosure to members and shareholders as to what and why things have gone wrong. People have put their hands in their pockets to fund this project - they are entitled to know the truth. The board have managed to shut down most discussion with their social media policy but there are still plenty of people willing to speak out when they see situations like this.

Today's Daily Snapshot on SVRLive shows a chap up a ladder looking at the downpipe on the end of the building.

Maybe they have seen the weather forecast and are wondering if they can block off the downpipe and divert the rainwater elsewhere on the roof.

I really am beginning to think that they forgot to lay the underground drainage for rainwater at the terrace end of the building...

Makes you think, doesn't it?

When I had a look today I forgot to see if the remainder of the terrace pavers had been put down. There is a U-shaped concrete gulley along the building wall and one along the outer edge of the un-paved part. The gulleys have metal gratings that finish flush with the paving. So, yes, Derby4, there are drains, and yes it does make me think, but I will refrain from saying what.

Thanks for the clarification. What put me on enquiry was that after the rain about ten days ago the terrace area was totally immersed in water.
From the small "daily image" it was not obvious that a drain was in place.

Lets hope that yesterday they connected up the downpipe to the drain.

I stand corrected, and apologies,


Rob

In the daily snapshot of a few days ago, there seemed to be a small group in discussion on the unfinished terrace area and one of them may be a woman. So possibly the need to finish that area was being discussed by or with SVR people.

The interesting question is how the interior fit out is progressing. Did Madderlake happen to notice if the doors are fitted and if not had any visible walls been finished?

Doors have beeen fitted and have been painted. The interior floors appear to have been laid and many interior walls appear to be finished

Just notices some new photos from 9/10 have been posted on the Bridgnorth Station page. They answer my question about the doors being fitted, but now confused about what they are all for.

The other new feature is a previously unannounced corner garden. Maybe some screening between the patio patrons and train passengers, or just a nice decorative touch?

The brick paving on the platform side of the building looks superb, sets off the building very well.
