The ABC brings word of trouble at the vast construction site we used to call the National Gallery of Australia.
The problem started last week when a crane dropped a concrete slab. This is a big deal on construction sites and the union wants to inspect, while the builder Manteena is holding out against the intrusion:
- Manteena said WorkCover assessed the crane and declared it safe to operate.
Today the union will try to enter the site to inspect more than 60 alleged safety breaches.
But Manteena says the union is waging a dishonest campaign against it and it has an excellent safety record.
