Headhouse - Increased Cost - Longer Schedule - Mainly Nightwork - Increased Passenger Safety Risks - Increased Service Disruptions - Required Minimum 32+ Weekend Diversions - Required Frequent Changes to Accessible Routes - Required Frequent Changes to Boarding Areas Phase 1 Phase 2 Phases 3&4

25 Construction Phasing Advantages: - Safer Operations & Construction - Reduced Travel Impacts - Reduced Project Schedule - Simpler Surface Work - Easier Trip Planning Disadvantages: - Longer walk for some users - Additional transfer time Station Closure and By-pass Alternative (Selected Option)
