Raising the roof on St David’s Day

roofing works at Fishguard & Goodwick Station

The pictures speak for themselves: Fishguard & Goodwick Station is rapidly becoming a reality. St David’s Day saw completion of the roof trusses on the rebuilt station building. And both the station and the brick shed are on course to be re-roofed in the next few weeks.

Predictions that the main site works will be complete in March are looking increasingly credible. The works, all visible from Station Road in Goodwick, are proceeding rapidly on all parts of the site. The pattern of roof trusses shows that a canopy will extend beyond the station building on both the car park and platform sides. The rebuilt station building is very close indeed to the brick shed, suggesting that in future the two buildings may be connected. At the far end of the platform, a platform end railing has been installed. And special pavers are in place at the platform edge.

This view of the works is worth comparing with many taken from the same angle over past weeks months and years – just browse back through previous posts here on Fishguard Trains. It looks like Goodwick has its second Phoenix building.
