The work to replace the central lifts has started!
The contractors have boarded up the doors to the lifts from levels 2-11 and their next task is to remove the old lifts. This process will take about 2 weeks and will involve removing the lifts via the motor room, an area of the Library which isn’t open to the public. As you might expect, removing the lifts will be quite noisy and so the team are going to do the noisiest work between midnight and 8am.
