Whoops! Cameron Offices incident

By paperboy - 17 January 2008 49

Just heard a whisper that the demolition work at the Cameron Offices has gone amiss, with part of a wall collapsing onto a car parked nearby… Anyone know more?

[ED: Here’s a pic thanks to Ray!]

All the buildings around woden used to be named after the First Fleet…
HMS Siruis was the flagship,
HMS Supply was an escort,
Alexander, Charlotte, Friendship, Lady Penrhyn, Prince of Wales, and Scarborough were all transports,
and Borrowdale, Golden Grove and Fishburn were all supply boats.

Fishburn was one of the ships of the First Fleet (so was Sirius) so I’d say that’s what they were named after.

@Pandy – yeah it’s the old Fishburn and Sirius buildings. I’m watching the machines gnawing away at from my desk. Hoping I don’t get squashed by some concrete! Here’s hoping the building that replaces it has a nicer name than ‘Fishburn’ as well. Yikes

Isn’t this just great!

(Sorry, I haven’t read the article yet – but am going to now do so! 😉 )

Mr Evil: The CT article today goes further, with the CFMEU saying that they’d told Workcover about specific concerns with the safety of the wall that collapsed, two weeks ago.

“Will their ‘full investigation’ turn out to be an incompetence hiding, mate protecting, publicity avoiding shambles of the fire enquiries?”

Probably not: Stanhope won’t be involved in the process at all. 😉

I noticed some ‘cow’ from the CMFEU was on the TV last night going on how they’d been reporting to ACT Workcover their concerns about some of the practices allegedly taking place at that worksite.

On this of all days.

Will their ‘full investigation’ turn out to be an incompetence hiding, mate protecting, publicity avoiding shambles of the fire enquiries?

Crushed car incident will be ‘fully investigated’
