Whanganui’s Durie Hill elevator resumed service on Monday after an early morning blessing lead by Tupoho kaumātua John Maihi.

Work on the new entrance way designed by Henry Dickson, maintenance overhaul of the lift car has been completed and the 102-year-old elevator is back in business providing a regular service between Anzac Parade and Durie Hill.

The operation of the service has been taken over by Whanganui Connection led by Anthonie Tonnon.

Assistant operator Niki Vernon said they had been “able to ease in gently” on the first day of operation.
