The maps show Pacific Railway Station station in 1998 and now.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Write at least 150 words.


The plans compare the original layout of Pacific Railway station in 1998 with that of the present day.

Generally, changes in layout almost take place in every corner of the railway station, while the platforms, cafe and ticket box remain nearly the same in both position and design. Several new facilities were introduced to the railway station.

To the right corner of the station, the platforms together with the cafe are unchanged; however, the shop was removed and the ticket box was expanded.

In the middle area, the most striking point is the disappearance of the toilets, displacing it is the construction of a restaurant as well as two shops which were situated in a vertical line.

Moreover, significant changes have been made in the left-hand corner of the railway station. In the 1998 plan, it was an absolutely vacant place, on the contrary, in the modern day plan, it was filled up with more platforms and a supermarket located in the lower left position.
