Work on S542

I've notice the frame and giant condom thing shrouding S542 at East Perth Passenger Terminal over the last weeks.  I assumed it was for asbestos removal or something?

Last Sunday I cycled past and the condom was off..  However today I noticed it back on again?

Does anyone know what the story is?

Yeah. I guessed the asbestos thing and thanks for the link.. I was just curious as to why is had been re covered after the asbestos was gone? Are they planning some preservation techniques on the boiler as well or something?

Could be they found some more and needed to put it up again. Or they just want the cosmetic redo to be a small surprise.

I also stopped by it on the weekend the cage wrap had been removed and knowing how boiler cladding should be removed, I would suggest there is some significant think tank goin on as to how to make it look new again.

Given the way it has been shrink wrapped I dont think any Grand unveiling will be occurring soon. Rather it has likely been done to prevent further deterioration and parts going missing.

Hopefully coming back together this time, or they found more asbestos to remove.
