Safety is our key prority

Keeping the community safe - responding to coronavirus

Construction on large-scale public infrastructure projects has been deemed critical under Stage four restrictions, so works will continue, with strict health and safety protocols in place.

Workforce numbers have already been significantly reduced to support directions from the Chief Health Officer.

The health and safety of our workforce and community remains our top priority. Under new restrictions workers on all of Victoria’s Big Build sites are required to wear face coverings unless they meet any of the criteria for exception such as a medical condition or for OH&S guidelines.

Physical distancing measures are in place as well as increased hygiene practices.
