The worksites inside the monuments stopped just before Christmas and will reopen in stages on 2 and 7 January 2013. The Works Managers, technical managers and operational managers for the various sectors made their final inspection tour on 21 December 2012, noting the partial state of execution of the works in the usual internal document.
