Engineer confident subbies will be paid

THE city's engineer is confident that Bathurst Demolitons will be paid for its work at Mount Panorama despite Austin Australia Pty Ltd being in voluntary administration.

Austin Australia Pty Ltd subcontracted Bathurst Demolitons to dismantle the pits at Mount Panorama but was placed into voluntary administration late last year.

City engineer Neil Allen said yesterday he had met with representatives of Austin Australia Pty Ltd and Bathurst Demolitions and had received a letter from Austin Australia Pty Ltd administrator Keiran Hutchison "reaffirming their commitment to satisfactorily complete the project and to pay subcontractors so Bathurst Demolitions will be fixed up shortly after Austin Australia Pty Ltd gets paid”.
