Keeping an eye on Roberts Street

While the Office of Housing has advised that asbestos removal works will now not commence this Tuesday 11 March, it is important that everyone keeps an eye on the Roberts Street estate in case unscheduled works begin. This shouldn't happen, but if you do see activity on the site that appears related to the demolition, here's what to do.

First, call me on 0404 526 555 and I will alert the media and send a text alert to local families.

Secondly, use whatever means you have to capture a digital record of what's happening. If you have a digital video camera, you can upload footage to the ABC News website that will be considered for ABC News. You can also send pictures by email or mobile (MMS) to +61 417 751 633. If you are contacted by the media for comment, you are welcome to refer them to me as you wish.

The delay in the scheduled demolition works offers us an opportunity to put our case for further public disclosure and a halt to demolition works until all the facts are in and have been considered by the community. Don't let them catch us napping!
