Post office gets facelift

A THICK layer of spiderwebs were entwined, covering the roof and holey walls.

This is the reason a portion of Warwick’s Australia Post office has been cordoned off for the past few weeks to make way for much-needed maintenance works.

Creative Commercial Projects painter Earl Vickers is one man behind the post office’s upstairs transformation as part of the heritage building’s upgrade.

“You should have seen it when we first started,” Mr Vickers said.

“There were holes in the floors and cobwebs everywhere but now floating floorboards have been installed and we’ve taken a gurney to the outside.”

An Australia Post spokeswoman said the Victoria Street side of the building was taped off due to maintenance and cleaning work to protect and preserve the building’s heritage qualities.“The sectioned-off stairwell is to ensure public safety while these works are being carried out. The works do not impede any customer access to the post office,” the spokeswoman said.

“The works have been undertaken over the past eight weeks and will be complete by the end of the month.”
