State Square Underground Car Park Asbestos Identified

Excavation of the State Square Underground Car Park has identified asbestos-containing material buried on site.

NT WorkSafe and the Environment Protection Authority have been notified and environmental monitoring is underway to ensure the safety of construction workers and adjacent businesses.

The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics is working in collaboration with project stakeholders to determine a management plan.

The affected areas have been contained in order for excavation to continue and remediation will commence during this month to manage the asbestos issue.

There is no immediate safety risk and works will continue on site.
