Gallery glass repairs are now under way

-

Scaffoldin­g at the north-facing corners of the new Shepparton Art Museum is in place to allow repairs to glass windows damaged during the building’s installati­on.

Greater Shepparton City Council infrastruc­ture director Phil Hoare said the custom-made glass had taken ‘‘considerab­le time’’ to be re-fabricated and shipped to Shepparton.

Mr Hoare said the installati­on was highly weather-dependent and could not be undertaken in wet weather. Crane lifts also cannot operate in moderate or high winds.

Mr Hoare said, weather permitting, the glass was expected to be installed by the end of next week.
