The ABC reports that the demolitions of 78 and 80 Northbourne Avenue have ground to a halt over the handling of asbestos:
Workers are refusing to enter the hotel construction site at 78-80 Northbourne Avenue in Braddon because of fears over asbestos handling.
The CFMEU says asbestos is not being removed or disposed of correctly.
ACT branch secretary Dean Hall says workers are not wearing protective gear around asbestos contaminated material or being properly decontaminated after finishing work.
Having torn 80 open like that I can’t say I’m thrilled about it being left open either.
