Opal Towers Update

Late afternoon on the 24 December, the Opal Towers residential building in Australia Avenue was evacuated as cracking noises were heard raising safety concerns for residents.

Bassam Aflak, Director, Ecove advised “the developers and builders are waiting on further information from the engineers. It is understood the issue is with a concrete panel."

The Business Association understands that this is a localised issue.

Bassan said “Importantly the authorities have deemed it safe for the people to re-enter and have isolated the issue to a small number of apartments with no danger to residents. 

“Builders and engineers are confident this localised issue can be fixed and most people with now back in their homes.

“Residents are covered under warranty and Ecove will help them through that process.”
