The discovery of asbestos recently in old footings where the new community sporting centre is being built at the Crookwell Memorial Oval may delay completion of the project.


In accordance with established procedures the find was reported to SafeWork NSW and a qualified independent assessor was engaged.


A management plan was put into place and now all asbestos has been removed and the site remediated, ensuring safety at the location.


Upper Lachlan mayor, John Stafford says there may be a delay in finishing the project by up to three weeks, but council is working with the contractor to reduce the lost time.
