Leisure Complex Plan Transcript
Hello and thank you for attending this meeting I have called it to discuss station masses as they have been a number of changes made and I want to ensure that you are all filled in well as I’m sure you will all have heard there are plans on the way to make some alterations to the station complex. They we did the reconstruction work that occurred last year from the data collected this year we have learned that our station is too small to cope with the large number of visitors passing through it on a daily basis. However relocation is unnecessary which means you are stuff will be unaffected and can continue with your work as normal. We’ve decided that our only option is to make the area bigger by building new platforms and new facilities such as cafes and lounge areas. We have already purchased the sites on which these new facilities will be constructed we had initially planned to build on the side of the old industrial buildings however tests carried out on the soil and water showed that it was too highly contaminated with waste from the industrial processes instead we have purchased the site just across the road on which they used to be a lot of houses that were later converted into shops. These buildings will of course be demolished to make room for a new facilities. What is going to be built on this new sites I see thinking to yourselves. There have been lots of ideas put forward by all the parties involved initially the station had planned to use the site as a car park however we decided this would be a very unsatisfactory way to occupy the space. Instead we have hired an architect who has an exciting vision to transform the site into a large leisure centre complete with cafes shops and the lounge where visitors can relax. We hope that this new complex will attract many visitors not just from the station but also from the apartment blocks in the nearby town center as part of the construction works we are also going to create new formal gardens where visitors can enjoy the greenery and sits outside in the fresh air. The new leisure complex will be located to the right of the shopping district so these formal gardens will serve as a meeting place for pedestrians.
Before you hear the rest of the tool you have some time to look at questions 15 to 20. Now listen and also questions 15 to 20.
Now I’m delighted to be able to introduce you all to the plans for a new complex Sir if you could please focus your attention on the maps in front of you we will start to the main entrance I make our way towards the cafe which is located behind the wall that we can see directly in front of us just next to the rear entrance in this position the cafe is obscured from the entrances which will keep the space warm and also creates an intimate atmosphere. Once visitors arrive at a station they often need further transport in order to reach their homes therefore we have introduced a taxi rank with its own waiting area in order to reach these facilities the visitors must simply leave the complex via the rear entrance and turn left visitors who have traveled to the station by car can leave it in the car park for a small fee which is located just outside of the rear entrance to the right. At present our station does not have an internal seating area for passengers so they’re forced to wait for their trains outside on the platforms which can be particularly unpleasant during the winter. We have therefore decided to introduce a passenger waiting area inside the new complex to the right of the rear entrance with comfortable seating where passengers can pass the time comfortably in the warmth. As this space is a distance away from the station we have also proposed a waiting area for wheelchair users that is closer as visitors enter through the main entrance the space will be located behind the wall to the left. Finally we have also decided that it will be a great idea to introduce a new tourist office where visitors can get maps and informational now wonderful town we want this new office to be easily accessible so visitors entering through the main entrance we’ll find it directly to that right now I think that’s all I have to tell you please feel free to ask any questions if you would like to name anything else. The end of section 2. You now have holds a minute to check your own business.
