Saleyards roof ahead of schedule
Published on 10 July 2020
The Horsham Regional Livestock Exchange roof construction is progressing ahead of schedule.
Horsham Rural City Council project manager Sue Newall said work was about four to six weeks ahead of time, with all roofing now up.
“All five stages now have roof sheeting installed which includes skylights for natural lighting. Under-roof lights have been installed across the five stages and are fully operational," Ms Newall said.
“The aim is to have the project fully completed by end of October 2020.
"Importantly, all structural works within the selling area are now completed, with negligible disruption expected for all future sale days,” Ms Newall said.
Work is continuing this week on guttering and stormwater pipes, and the installation of water storage tanks will follow.
Agent walkway ladders and gates and hydraulic delivery ramps will be fitted in the coming months along with 100 kw solar panels.
