First stage of railway station upgrade completed

A covering has been removed and scaffolding remains around part of an extensive repair project at the Dunedin Railway Station.

Work concentrated on the north end of the building and included removal of the roof, replacement of timber and damaged tiles, leadwork and stonework repairs and repainting.

Stage one of the three-stage upgrade of the category 1 historic place started last November and was completed in June.

The contract for the first stage was awarded to Naylor Love and the work cost about $1million.

The project is due to be completed in 2023.
