Crisis point in NBN roll out

Written By miftah nugraha on Senin, 15 Juli 2013 | 19.55

CONTRACTORS and the company overseeing the roll out of the NBN in Tasmania will have a crisis meeting in Hobart today amid concerns contractors are set to walk off the job.

Tensions have been brewing in recent weeks with contractors unhappy about outstanding invoices and erratic work programs.

Rumney MLC Tony Mulder raised the alarm this morning after he was contacted by a number of concerned contractors.

The meeting, between Visionstream and contractors, has been confirmed by the Civil Contractors Federation Tasmania chief executive officer Tony Cook.

Mr Cook said the Federation is hopeful a positive meeting between NBN contractors and Visionstream will allow an amicable way forward that provides commercial certainty for or both parties and the continued roll out of the NBN.

Mr Mulder said he has been told a "walk-out" would bring the roll out of the NBN in Tasmania to an end.

"The core issue seems to be a massive underestimation by the NBN of the actual cost of connecting homes," Mr Mulder said.

"Industry sources claim that NBN accepted a tender at the cost of $1200 per home, just under half what other tenders had more realistically priced at twice that amount."

Visionstream has been contacted for comment.
