A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson told the Beagle "Due to the age of the building, asbestos was expected. It was planned for and managed, with suitable contractors and procedures in place."

"Around 50 tonnes of asbestos-contaminated material including sheeting, pipes and guttering has so far been removed from the building and former bowling greens." "All asbestos-contaminated material has been disposed at licensed facilities in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency guidelines and legislation." The RMS spokesperson said "Safe Work NSW approved the work being carried out and has visited the site multiple times with no concerns raised. "Immediate neighbours were also notified about asbestos removal, in accordance with the requirements Section 3.5 of State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development) 2008. "Roads and Maritime Services has conducted air monitoring on several occasions during the asbestos removal and demolition process with no positive results for airborne asbestos. Water carts and sprinklers were on site at all times and used as required to manage non-asbestos dust." Work on the temporary site offices and community information centre, including the removal of asbestos materials, is expected to be complete in coming months.
