Asbestos test scheduled
Buildings, parks and roads in the heart of Canberra will be surveyed for asbestos, after the National Capital Authority conceded it did not have accurate information on the presence of the potentially-dangerous material across its estate.
Sections of Commonwealth Park, the Carillon and Commonwealth Place are among 42 locations set to be inspected, according to new tender documents.
The authority has published a tender calling for a consultant to conduct a “hazardous material management survey” of land and assets under its control.
