The historic ‘Hazelwood’ sign at the former Hazelwood Power Station has been removed – but it won’t be forgotten.
The highly visible red letters were carefully removed on 9 February 2021 by demolition contractors Delta Group and will now go into storage until plans for its future are finalised.
The sign, set up in 1966, is about 25 metres long and each letter stands 1.82 metres (six feet) high. The letters are of varying widths with the ‘W’ the widest at some two and a half metres. Finished in red vitreous enamel, each letter was fitted with four rows of red neon tubing which provided the distinctive red sign.
