CCF SA tells govt to get a wriggle on

Peter Nolan, chief executive of the CCF’s South Australian branch, said that while the move would help local communities, the challenge now was to expedite the process. “It is a real concern to us that there is unacceptable delay between governments committing and making the funding available and projects commencing,” Nolan said. “In many cases our members just don’t know when work is going to start and that is absolutely critical to keep people in jobs.“Governments need to cooperate to get work to tender very quickly and there must be a process to ensure this happens. Progress in projects under $30 million which support small to medium business is particularly important.” The CCF’s SA branch has more than 350 member companies, which employ approximately 5000 South Australians and complete over $1 billion worth of civil infrastructure construction work annually in South Australia.
