Works are underway to replace the damaged walkway along the northern perimeter of the Elder Hall, expected to take up to eighteen months. The scope will include the removal of the 1961 extension to the Elder Hall.

Conservation work is planned to be completed by late April. Affected Music School staff are being relocated with access to the northern entrance of the Elder hall being maintained for most of the period of demolition.

Further work is planned for the latter part of 2017 with completion in May 2018.
