Re-bronzing under way at the Menin Gate

06 June 2012

Work is under way to clean and re-bronze the three large rings in the roof of the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial.

Hanging scaffolds have been suspended through the roof to allow our staff to carry out the work.

The renovation, which began on Monday 4 June, is expected to take three weeks and should not cause any hindrance to the public.

In addition, due to road works in the Frenchlaan, which is the road just beyond the Menin Gate, the road through the Gate will be closed off for vehicle traffic from 1 June until 23 July 2012.
