Is it just me or does all this demolition even before a solid plan for the site has been finalised seem a bit hasty and short-sighted?

There's a lot of contamination at the site so demolition and remediation is a lengthy process. We ought to be ready to go with something once that's all finished. But definitely a failure that plans haven't been fully settled more than a decade after we first knew the site would be vacated.

To me it seems as they (Liberal State Govt) just make it up as they go. I guess it has helped they won & have been awarded Fed Govt $$ for the National space agency etc
Btw, I still don’t understand why the JV with C&G as chosen by the previous Labour Govt was then re-negged upon? I am pretty sure they agreed to do (or change) the master plan to satisfy whatever the Govt wanted.

Apart from them wanting to go different directions (i.e. debate over residential component), IIRC there was bad blood after C&G backed out of purchasing the State Admin Centre (thereby depriving the government's budget of an expected +$100 million windfall).

A large crawler crane has been set up at the east end near where the Cardiac building was. This crane would have a capacity of around 200t. I'm not sure what it is being used for. Click on picture for bigger.
