Update three – Tunnel collapse

Air quality tests are currently being conducted in the Acton Tunnel to confirm whether any of the small amount of bonded asbestos struck in the accident has been released.

Initial indications are that there is no asbestos fibres present. We will provide an update on this once the testing is completed. The current one kilometre exclusion zone only impacts on the roadway itself to direct drivers to alternative routes.

People with any health conditions or concerns can seek advice through Access Canberra on 13 22 81.
