The Canberra Times has a bit on the trouble at Cooleman Court where asbestos has been found in the aircon and shops have had to close:
- Four Cooleman Court shops are gradually reopening after an asbestos scare late last week.
The shops were closed on Thursday when asbestos-related material found in an air-conditioning duct months ago had potentially been disturbed in the recent refurbishments and was possibly blowing into the outlets.
A spokeswoman for the centre’s owners, Mirvac Real Estate Investment Trust, had said there was minimal risk to the public. But the air-handling unit was shut down, all air registers serviced by the duct were sealed and the shops were closed while the area was decontaminated and tested.
Minimal risk eh?
