NSW govt light rail contract ‘incompetent’

Contractors building Sydney’s CBD light rail project can only be held to account for two weeks of delay under the contract signed with the NSW government, a parliamentary inquiry has heard.

Transport for NSW representatives revealed on Monday the liquidated damages clause on the contract was capped at 15 days and $7.5 million per zone.

Greens MP David Shoebridge labelled it “insane and incompetent”.

“They’re laughing at you, aren’t they? With a 15 day capping out of liquidated damages, they’re laughing at you,” he told the hearing.
