Six days have past and still no information or comment by the City of Melbourne as to why the Swanston Street wall collapsed.
The City of Melbourne has a whole department of Structural Civil Engineers costing rate payers millions of dollars, surely they could shed some light and informatuion on this tragic event?
Cr. Stephen Mayne, who is not known to be shy for words, has failed to make any comment on the wall, not even a tweet of condolance or any form of explanation
I would hate to see them in action during a “real crisis”.
Meanwhile questions remain unanswered as to if a permit for the hoarding cladding the fatal wall and been issued and whether the design and construction of the plywood hoarding had met Council guidelines and public safety requirements
