What is being done with the historic red rock on some retaining walls? Will it be reinstated once a wall is rebuilt?

The red rock is being carefully removed and stored securely. SCIRT will repair the retaining walls in such a way that they can be resurfaced (for example with the red rock) at a later date. SCIRT has the responsibility to make the wall structurally sound. Council and the Historic Places Trust will decide on the future facing of the walls.

What is happening with red rock from the outside of the retaining walls?
