The New South Wales government has imposed a two-week shutdown on construction across greater Sydney as part of its response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Shopping centre developer and owner Scentre Group responded to the shutdown announcement on 17 July by advising that it would close construction sites and place a halt on all shop fitouts at its Westfield centres across greater Sydney, while Multiplex closed all five of its construction sites in Sydney. BuildCorp boss Tony Sukkar says most companies within the construction sector should survive if the shutdown only lasts for two weeks, but things would become more problematic if it is extended.
