Demolition of Allianz to begin immediately

Written by:

The demolition of Sydney’s Allianz Stadium can begin immediately after a judge dismissed an application to extend a court order preventing major works.

The temporary injunction – put in place in February to allow a challenge to the $730 million project in the Land and Environment Court – was due to expire at 5pm on Friday.

Those behind the failed challenge applied to have it extended until Monday, when they head to the Court of Appeal in another attempt to stop the controversial project.

But on Friday Justice Nicola Pain dismissed the application and lifted the freeze on major works.

It follows her decision on Wednesday to throw out the challenge based on the planning process to rebuild the city’s biggest rectangular stadium.
