SYDNEY, Australia

Major Australian building companies say they will pursue the New South Wales government for lost costs if it dumps the controversial Sydney Central Business District Metro (CBD) project.

Up to AU$60 million (US$53.44 million) had been spent on the project by the construction industry, Australian Constructors Associati330on president Wal King said.

There have been several reports the CBD Metro will be scrapped, and replaced with a light rail system.

“I think if it’s not built the industry is going to have a serious issue with this government,” King said.

If the project is cancelled, he said, “I think the industry would be on the government’s doorstep saying ‘we want some money back’. ”
