It’s up – but not quite. There’s still a bit of work to be done around the feet of the controversial John McDouall Stuart statue.
The latest piece of public art is competing with a light pole: “There is no intention to move this in the short term,” says Town Council CEO Rex Mooney.
The explorer’s four meter high image is still surrounded by fencing.
“Whilst the fence is up the statue site is an active work site,” says Mr Mooney. “In the interest of public safety and risk management council had a ranger on site yesterday.
“The fence is due to come down in coming days as final works to the site are completed.”
