Today, the local state of emergency was extended for another 14 days. This allows work on the removal of the crane to continue in a safe manner. A link to the updated order is included at: https://novascotia.ca/emergency/. The renewed state of emergency remains in effect to Oct. 30, unless government terminates or extends it.
The storm forecast for Thursday could impact timing for removal of the main tower of the crane. A further update will be shared after the storm.
In preparation of the weather, the crew is assessing scaffolding on the top level of the Olympus Building and undertaking additional safety measures, where needed.
