Work on the Queenstown and Frontier Museum is drawing to an end with curator Thobile Mdlela indicating this week that the project was scheduled to reach completion in March.
The department of sport recreation, arts and culture would however have to wait for the construction company’s official confirmation of completion, he said.
Mdlela said about 90% of the roofing had been done. “The ceiling is finished. The contractors are currently busy replacing the garters. Two old lavatories which were out of order have been revamped along with two public toilets and one which has been installed to allow for use by the disabled.”
He said he had been pleased with the improvements during a recent site visit. The museum staff members are currently operating from the department’s offices in Komani.
