Maintenance and re-inpainting of the names on the panels is still on-going. During the works access to some of the panels might be difficult. However, during working hours, and if feasible, the public will be allowed closer access to an inscription on these panels, on request to the foreman on site. The work is expected to be completed by the end of October 2013.
Also, from 9 September 2013 till 9 October 2013 the road on either side of the Menin Gate will be closed off completely or partially from 8.00 hrs to 17.00 hrs. Access for pedestrians will still be possible.
