Response to COVID-19

Infrastructure NSW has been leading cross-agency communication, monitoring and reporting of infrastructure-related COVID-19 impacts throughout 2020 and 2021 to ensure industry, unions and government receive consistent and factual information. 

The response to COVID-19 is constantly evolving and we are committed to providing clear leadership and information to industry based on the current health advice and relevant Public Health Orders.

From 15 December 2021 density limits on construction sites were lifted. From 24 December 2021, masks are required in all indoor areas. 

COVID-19 Safety Plan 

A COVID-19 Safety Plan is no longer a requirement for construction sites in Greater Sydney, however they are still recommended for all construction sites.

Changes to Construction Work Hours

A temporary order made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to allow construction work to take place again on weekends and public holidays expired on 24 December 2021.

State significant infrastructure and some critical infrastructure may continue to operate on a Sunday, Sunday or public holiday until 31 March 2022 under the Environment Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
