Statement from WorkSafe's Executive Director of Health and Safety, Marnie Williams, in relation to removing the collapsed crane from a construction site at Southbank:
"Work by the builder to remove the crane is due to begin on site tomorrow (Wednesday, 12 August). If preparatory work goes well, work to dismantle the crane will begin on Thursday.
"It is a complex and difficult operation, and the safety of workers and the public remains WorkSafe's number one priority.
"Given the complexity of the task, it is too early to determine when work might be completed and roads re-opened.
"Police and VicRoads will be kept informed of progress."
