KBRG received an ACT Heritage grant to restore the 1930 concrete pillar street signposts in the Barton Housing Precinct. We have made good progress with the conservator, Gillian Mitchell having killed off the lichen and fungus, and applied a nicely sculptured protective sacrificial mortar. A number of volunteers have been patiently painting the pillars so the street names stand out like new. Not quite finished but good progress so far. The painting is taking about 7 hours per pillar!
