Earlier this month, the Environmental Planning and Assessment (COVID-19 Development – Construction Work Days) Order 2020 came into place, allowing construction sites in NSW to operate on weekends and public holidays.

The Walsh Bay Arts Precinct Redevelopment Project will comply with this order and extend the Saturday work hours that were originally 8am to 1pm, to 7am to 5pm. We are also intending to work on Sundays and public holidays when necessary.

Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we carry out these works.
