Stabilisation North and South transepts

Damaged masonry for both the transepts will be deconstructed.  Temporary steel support frames will be installed, and temporary wall cladding will be needed.

September 2020 – The large concrete foundation needed for the steel support frame that will be used to stabilise the transept was poured.

October 2020 – The 32 tonne steel support frame is now in place (see the photo at the top of the page).

November 2020 – Extensive scaffolding is now in place (see image bottom right).
