WORKSAFE and the construction union are satisfied with asbestos removal works on the Ballarat Sports and Events Centre site.
The Courier understands the removal has not slowed preliminary foundation works in the $24 million project on Norman Street.
CFMEU safety site manager Gerry Ayers said there were no issues or concerns in the project.
“The CFMEU is aware of the asbestos found at the Ballart Spots and Event Centre and are satisfied that WorkSafe has acted promptly and appropriately to the situation,” Dr Ayers said.
“We only wish WorkSafe in Melbourne were as attentive and responsible as they seem to have been in Ballarat.”
A WorkSafe spokesman also confirmed the asbestos removal and that this was carried out appropriately.
Stadium works started a month ago with the first official sod turned last week.
