We have received the following update:
Council has contacted the Facility Manager at the Interchange and received the following information- Please see a brief timeline of the situation so far:
- February 2020 severe storms and rainfall caused major damage to escalators and continued for approx. 2 weeks. Technicians
needed to wait until the components were dry to assess the components.
- March 2020 – consultants and quotes were provide for major repairs to be carried out.
- April 2020 – Quotes approved and Contractors engaged for rectification.
- April 2020 see below from Contractors:
As discussed following our phone call, there’s been significant delays in getting these parts here due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
I’ve been informed the parts will be cleared for dispatch in around 15-20 days.
We then have to wait another 4 weeks approximately until they land here in Sydney. Not ideal I know but right now with everything going on, we don’t have any control over shipments coming from abroad.
I’ll continue to update the team weekly as I’m informed & we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this delay may cause.
Please be mindful these dates are estimates only and we cannot guarantee anything at this current point in time.
Currently we hoping all parts to arrive by Mid June, and works will start asap once all material is ready. The COVID – 19 has caused major delays in the needed rectification works.
We have advised the general public if they ask there is another lift and escalators available to get to their destination.
I trust this information is helpful in explaining the length of time the repairs are taking’
