Out with the old escalators … and in with the new
Halfway through the project to replace the UTS Tower’s original escalators and things are looking up, quite literally, with installation of the brand new escalators underway.
But with each new escalator weighing around eight tonnes, installing them is a huge task. The pictures tell the story so far.
Works will continue into 2019, with the new, wider, safer escalators set to be unveiled and operational in mid-February, ahead of the start of the Autumn teaching session.
