The fire damaged crane on the construction site on Glenmore Road and Union Ave has been safely demobilized and the area is now considered safe. As a result, the traffic closures established on April 6 along Glenmore Road were lifted.
The relevant evacuation order for 16 properties in the area has been lifted and residents whose homes were not affected by the fire can return to their homes later that evening. The local state of emergency applicable to the area has also been lifted.
The city thanks all parties involved in ensuring the safety of the public and the workers involved in the safe dismantling of the crane, as well as residents of the Glenmore borough and the wider community for their patience during the traffic disruption.
