Opal re­port out soon

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

APART­MENT own­ers will meet the builder of Syd­ney’s cracked Opal Tower af­ter en­gi­neers stopped short of ad­vis­ing res­i­dents to re­turn home.

The newly-built tower in Syd­ney Olympic Park was evac­u­ated on Christ­mas Eve af­ter cracks were found in the build­ing spark­ing fears it could col­lapse. At a meet­ing yester- day, tower builder Icon was ex­pected to up­date own­ers about in­ves­tiga­tive, sta­bil­i­sa­tion and re­me­dial works.

Two en­gi­neer­ing ex­perts, com­mis­sioned by the state gov­ern­ment to in­ves­ti­gate the tower, on Fri­day said the build­ing is “struc­turally sound”.

Their in­terim re­port could be made avail­able within days.
