Asbestos To Be Cleared From Sydney's Underground

February 03, 2013 at 11:05 PM

Workers will be removing asbestos from some of Sydney's small underground power stations over Christmas in a bid to rid the power industry of the potentially deadly material.

 

Asbestos will be removed from 10 small electricity substations around the city over the coming months, including at Circular Quay and Hyde Park, Ausgrid said.

 

It comes after the Electrical Trades Union (ETU) released internal Ausgrid documents last month which showed about 49 cases of asbestos-related illness linked to the company in 22 years.
