Asbestos found at Barangaroo site

On 10 April 2012, workers downed tools on the new Sydney harbourside development, Barangaroo, following the discovery of asbestos.

The Secretary of the CMFEU, Brian Parker, expressed concern about the discovery.

Only a small amount of asbestos exposure can lead to a worker developing mesothelioma, the asbestos related cancer, in future years.

Lend Lease, who are developing the site, stated that safety was the highest priority.
