Progress at Roby

I took a stroll down to Roby station to see how they're getting on.  The northern access is now via the "new" subway which is, of course, the original subway re-roofed.
This shot is taken from the down (south) side, with the "new" section in the distance.  Above ground, the old trackbed has been dug out for the full length of the station and is now in use for vehicular access from the work site west of here to locations between Roby and Huyton.

Unfortunately the subway is already leaking, at the join between old brickwork and the new concrete slab.

Meanwhile, on the down platform, the canopy has suddenly gained nine props.  I'm not quite sure what's going on here, the plans do not call for any changes to the canopy.
