The ABC brings word that ACTEW have told the 100 odd day workers on the Cotter Dam Expansion their services are no longer required. On top of that 120 permanents aren’t getting paid past Thursday:

ACTEW believes it could be three months before the clean up is finished and construction work restarts at the site.

The Cotter Dam expansion project was due to be finished in August, but is now expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Paying the workers 1m per week for 3 months would work out to about 12mil.. when compared to the initial cost of 363mil, and a possible blowout upto 150mil, spending 12mil to retain your trained/skilled workforce doesnt seem like a stupid idea.

Its been reported that each day of down tools is costing them $250k, or over $22m for three months.

Intial cost was $120m, blownout to $363m, and now $500m?

and who will be paying this $500m? I guess the same ACT residents who pay the flood levy for the QLD and Vic Floods.

Welkin,
A 1:100 year event doesn’t mean the biggest rainfall in 100 years, its the average recurrence.
