Favourable weather conditions allowed for construction experts to begin the task of removing the crane this morning, and the crane's jib and A-frame have successfully been taken down.
Subject to weather conditions, work will continue tomorrow to remove the remainder or the crane tower and the mobile cranes that were brought in to assist with the disassembly.
Bridge Rd has reopened to traffic, however Lennox Street will remain closed to vehicles between Bridge Rd and Goodwood Street.
WorkSafe engineers will return to the scene again tomorrow.
