I noticed that last night as well. They seemed to have a large mobile crane parked next to the railway, so indeed, perhaps they are doing overnight to reduce the risk if anything goes wrong.

It's beginning to look like the aftermath of some parties I went to when I was younger.😁
It does however still look tidier and sturdier than my garage. 😕

At Temple Meads there were posters informing everyone of a passenger count today and tomorrow and that a member of the survey staff might ask you to complete a brief questionnaire with them.
It didn't take all that long before one of said staff asked if I would participate and with about 15 minutes until my train I was pleased to oblige. Sadly it was a very brief one in my case as I fell at the first hurdle when asked if I was using the station to change trains (I wasn't). The chap told me that they were only surveying people using Temple Meads as a changing point.

I was on the look out for the people in orange no sign when I passed through over the past two days

I was 'accosted' on platform 3. Same day, I glanced at a similar but much smaller survey notice roughly taped to a post by the Lidl exit at Lawrence Hill which surprised me a bit. Didn't read it properly though, in truth it was not easy to read, taped as it was, to a post. It might have referred to Temple Meads.
Anyone at Temple Meads today might still be asked as it's the last survey day their today.

Severnside CRP/Network Rail are working on a scheme to refurbish the Old Station Signal Box (that's the old manual box, not the 'modern' PSB) for use as (rather small) offices - see https://planningonline.bristol.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=P5BZ9IDNGRV00

Yes it works and I remember it now. It's true though, it is quite compact and bijou!

Got a distance glimpse of the old post office building today from the A4320 near St Philips.
Demolition progress seems to have slowed somewhat due, I guess, to the remaining structure being close to the platforms and therefore a requirement to tread gingerly is in order.

For those following the demolition of the former PO building by Temple Meads, catch it while you can. Had a look while at TM today and there ain't much left. No camera to take a picture with as, at the time, my alter ego Capt Halfwit was in charge!

Yeah, there's so little of it left I had to deliberately look for it on Saturday! I won't really miss it.

A slightly contre-jour shot looking north-west from Cattle Market Road, with the main train shed of Temple Meads to the left. Still a bit to do!
