Following unforeseen technical difficulties with the crane on Thursday, 10 January 2019, works to carry out a partial disassembly of the flag mast at Signal House, Ladder Hill, have continued and progressed well today, Friday, 11 January.
The St Helena Fire & Rescue Service, along with partners from the Environment & Natural Resources Directorate, have taken the yard arm down and are now working on lowering the top flagpole.
Work is expected to be completed by 4pm today.
The public will be kept updated on the works and opening of the closed areas via local radio stations.
