Stage One – Removal of the bridge

The first part of Selwyn’s Vision is the removal of the bridge in the Cathedral, which is currently located between the nave and the chancel.  Dominion Constructors Ltd is completing this work for the Cathedral. They moved in on Monday, 9 June.  Scaffolding is now up as high as the Cathedral ceiling.  Once the infrastructure is fully in place, the bridge will be cut into pieces that are approximately 200kg in weight, lowered, and removed across the Cathedral forecourt.  The Cathedral will re-open in mid September 2014.  During this time a new sound system and new performance lighting (to replace what was under the bridge) will be installed.
