I wrote this on June the first.
Now, from history, train stations had very high roofs (is that rooves?) to disperse smoke from steam trains. The tradition followed with the re-development of Spencer Street, except it is now to disperse diesel fumes. Let me tell you, it does not work. The fumes were almost overpowering. Horrendous.
Seems like I was correct. I did even give a thought for the poor staff who have to work in it. From today's Age. http://www.theage.com.au/news/national/illness-blamed-on-stations-wavy-roof/2006/06/20/1150701552965.html
SOUTHERN Cross Station's wavy roof — the centrepiece of its $700 million redevelopment — is trapping fumes from diesel trains and causing a string of illnesses ranging from vomiting to runny eyes, say concerned staff.
