COVID-19 update: Construction recommences in some parts of Greater Sydney

Release date: 30 July 2021

In line with the NSW Government’s COVID-19 Guidelines, construction on some School Infrastructure projects located outside the 8 local government areas (LGAs) of concern will resume on Saturday 31 July 2021.

Safety is the number one priority for School Infrastructure NSW and we are following all health advice in relation to construction sites.

Where our construction work is recommencing, a comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan will be in place for the site:

  • The contractor will enforce strict compliance, including no workers from the LGAs of concern, with the exception of authorised workers allowed under the Public Health Order.
  • Our construction sites will follow all current health guidelines, including a one person per 4sqm rule and all workers wearing masks for indoor and outdoor work.

From Friday 30 July 2021, you may see workers on site carrying out permitted works to prepare for work to resume safely.

Projects to upgrade and update school facilities, plus maintenance and repair jobs will return to work via a staged process, to ensure all work complies with current COVID-19 guidelines and ensures the highest levels of safety at our schools. 

We will publish regular updates on our website to communicate any changes on our construction sites in Greater Sydney, in line with NSW Government’s COVID-19 Guidelines.
