Newspaper Article 1995 – Cafeteria to fall

Cafeteria to fall

Work started two weeks ago on the first stage of redeveloping the Waipukurau Railway Station.

Workers were due to finish pulling down the former twin-gabled cafeteria today.

A group of 20 conservation Corps trainees will then move in on August 7 to clean up and repile the existing building in a 20-week project.

A further 20-week work block will involve painting and this should be completed by Christmas, project manager Jenny Nelson said.
