A YOUNG boy with dreams of working in construction has been helping out at a level crossing removal site.
Four-year-old Kai has been taking his Mum to Chelsea Station frequently to see how work on the station is progressing. The young man has visited so often that the team has brought him on board to help with traffic control on the footpath.
The LXRP team has gifted Kai a hard hat and safety vest to commemorate his efforts.
Kai’s mum Patchara says her son is obsessed with the construction work. “The diggers for the trenches and the big cranes being used, he just thinks they’re the coolest things,” she said. “He talks about it every day and tells me that he is off to work on the site. The traffic controllers have been so kind to him along with the other workers who always say hello. He has been loving having the works so close to home and has been telling everyone that he works for the Level Crossing Removal Project.”
The finishing touches on the rebuilt Chelsea Station are being applied. The project is expected to be completely finished soon.
