Courthouse steeple goes back on tomorrow morning Sunday 25th (weather permitting)

From Highland Council Press Release:

"On Sunday (25th August 2019) it is proposed to crane lift the newly refurbished steeple back on to the top of Nairn Courthouse. This will obviously be weather permitting.

In order to allow crane access to facilitate the lift, the full rear car park will be closed overnight at both entrances from the A96 from 10pm on Saturday 24th August until 10am on Sunday 25th.

Crane set up will take approximately an hour and a half from 07:00 hrs on Sunday 25th with the actual lift likely to take half an hour from 08:30am. For public safety, the High Street will be closed off in the immediate vicinity of the Courthouse for the duration of the lift. Areas adjacent to the Courthouse will also be cordoned off for safety reasons.

The construction works are currently on programme and the public are able to view the various stages of works required at Nairn Service Point.

The works are being carried out by Laing Traditional Masonry, and project managed by the Development and Infrastructure Service of The Highland Council."
