Some repairs, 47 mts above . . .

It isn’t easy to work on a solitary piece of structure at a height of 47-plus metres from the ground.

At least, for the team that is repairing the illuminated cross that is atop the tallest spire of St Thomas Cathedral in San Thome.

Yes, there is a staircase that leads from the roof to the spire head but it seems to have rusted over time and was tricky to trust by the workers. So they have erected a ground-to-top scaffolding.

“We wanted the cross to be repaired quickly because this is a landmark church,” said a church council senior. The parish priest could not communicate details despite calls seeking information.
