Iconic clock to be re­stored

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

THE City of Su­bi­aco will spend almost $100,000 to re­pair and re­store its iconic Fallen Sol­diers Memo­rial clock tower in Rankin Gar­dens on the cor­ner of Rokeby and Hamer­s­ley roads.

Su­bi­aco coun­cil­lors awarded the $97,737 ten­der to Du­ratec Aus­tralia spe­cial­ist con­trac­tors.

The City re­ceived a $55,000 Lot­tery­west grant to con­trib­ute to the struc­tural works and her­itage restora­tion.

Con­struc­tion will start after Aus­tralia Day and will be com­pleted in March.

The clock tower was un­veiled in 1923 to hon­our the fallen sol­diers of WWI.

It now com­mem­o­rates sol­diers from WWII and the Bor­neo, Korea, Malaya and Viet­nam wars.
