Popular clock alive and ticking
Richmond landmark restored to former glory
It's taken some time but Richmond's Queen St clock is now back on Network Tasman's strengthened building.
The clock was taken down last September to enable the building to be seismically strengthened and remodelled.
The building and a new two-storey addition to be built this year have been fully leased to Nelson Bays Primary Health and the DHB's Public Health department on long-term leases.
Network Tasman has been reviewing all of its assets to ensure that they meet stringent seismic and safety standards.
"Public safety is our priority across our whole business and we felt that this was a good opportunity to bring the building up to a standard which we were happy with.
"Re-installing Richmond's well-loved clock today is the icing on the cake of our refurbishing and strengthening work and we hope the community enjoys seeing it on Queen St once again," said Network Tasman chief executive Wayne Mackey,
