Help from above

A crane lifts scaffolding into place above the Dunedin Railway Station yesterday in preparation for the second stage of refurbishment work on the 115-year-old building.

Repairs on the category 1 historic building began last November and the first stage of the three-stage project was completed in June at a cost of about $1million. The overall project includes repairs to parts of the roof, exterior walls, ornate fixtures and stonework. All of the work is due to be completed in 2023.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
