Asbestos discovered at the Warren Park construction site

Asbestos has been discovered at the Warren Park construction site in Marrara.

Early site works have identified asbestos containing materials within soil mounds during the clearing of vegetation works.

The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics is working closely with the contractor and an independent asbestos hygienist to develop a remediation plan to safely recommence works.

It is anticipated that the April 2019 project completion date will still be met, regardless of these remediation works.

Worksafe NT and the Environment Protection Authority have also been notified.
