Urban Taskforce today congratulates the NSW Government on its decision to open up the construction industry across greater Sydney under a set of strict conditions which have been developed by industry in close consultation with the unions, the Government and NSW Health.

Once health orders are made, projects inside and outside the nominated restricted Local Government Areas will be able to open and have up to 50% of total site capacity, on site at any one time.

Workers who live outside restricted LGAs will be able to go into those LGAs for construction work.

Those who live within the restricted LGAs will be able to leave those LGAs for construction work if they can satisfy one of the following conditions:

  • They have had 2 vaccine injections, OR
  • They have had 1 vaccine injection at least 21 days prior, OR
  • They have had 1 vaccine jab PLUS they must show a negative COVID test result every 3 days.

Read the media release from Urban Taskforce CEO Tom Forrest welcoming the decision here.
