‘Witness’: press to be fixed soon

2009-01-06 00:00

All going well, the Witness press should be up and running early next week.

This follows damage to 80% of the roof of the press hall during Saturday night’s storm.

Today, a temporary tarpaulin roof is being manufactured and will be assembled over the press hall, said Russell Cumming, general manager, operations.

“Once all is secure, we’ll start with the recommissioning of the press to ascertain any damage that may have resulted from the storm.”

He added that the installment of the permanent roof sheeting will begin on Tuesday next week.

The Witness is currently being printed by Independent Newspapers in Durban.
