Craning achievement

Invercargill’s city centre is set to host a seventh crane as building works progress.

A tower crane will be installed at the Invercargill central redevelopment by early June.

Work is progressing on the large build, particularly on what will be the Farmers building and car park building.

Information on the development can be found at the Information Hub, which is open in the Bank of New South Wales building. 


Maybe with all these cranes its not too late to build a great big roof over the whole town center and keep the rain out. Or am I being a bit optimistic?
