THE heavy machinery has fired up again at the D’Orazio family-owned block next to the Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary.
Workers at the Bayswater site are under strict orders not to speak about what’s going on.
When resident Giorgia Johnson approached one of the workers, he wouldn’t speak to her, instead holding up a sign with phone numbers for Bayswater council and a PR firm the developers have hired.
The state government ordered a halt to the work last year after community outcry when several trees were felled on the neighbouring Carter family’s wetland-covered block.
Work’s now started up again to stabilise the D’Orazio-owned block, and it’ll then be left to settle for 12 months before any potential building work takes place.
