A roofing project taking more than a year at the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum neared its end yesterday.

Traffic was restricted along the State Highway 1 southbound one-way system for a time as a crane lifted temporary scaffolding materials off the roof.

Programme manager property services Andy Syme said the roofing project started  in May last year. It included the replacement of roof cladding over the Hudson Gallery and the Hall of History, removing and replacing some wall cladding, adding edge protection, and re-fixing cladding over the transport gallery.

Work took longer than initially expected due to Covid-19 and the discovery of asbestos, Mr Syme said.
