Sigh...

1. Ugly as sin compared to busway stations
2. Why would you completely rebuild a station on a curve?  :-\

Take your choice,
1.  Stupidity
2.  Well that's where it was before
3.  Because we can
4.  Absolute stupidity

I dont get why we dont build rail stations identical to busway stations. Nice tiled platforms, full coverage of the platform.

Pretty sure it comes down to design standards. Pretty sure TMR has standards for a busway station that say fairly explicitly what certain things have to be adhered to in terms of appearance.
There is no silver bullet… but there is silver buckshot.
Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

The major issue with Darra is the lack of water bubblers on platforms one, two and three ....  :P
