Blown out from 6.7B to 11B. Any evidence for that? , nobody else of repute is saying that. The last audit was a small decrease, which contradicts your assertion..
Stalled by CFMMEU and toxic soil.
Certainly not "stalled". Surface works, bridges etc powering along and the western side nearing completion. They have even started the pretty garden works at Altona, normally associated with the project end.
The dirt problem does mean the tunnel itself is yet to start. About a 1/3 of the project total.

Very few staff affected, for most it's work as usual just at a different part of the jigsaw. The specialist CBD drivers have plenty of other sites aound OZ and moved on, and there is aready a school training replacements.
Even the Benalla concrete plant is going gang-busters. Just keep piling up the finished panels, ready to be trained out. No delays there.
Cain/Kirner. We have differing views of ancient history. Your never gunna change, so I dont bother.
