NSW Premier  Mike  Baird  and  Minister  for  Transport  and  Infrastructure  Andrew Constance today marked the topping out of the new International Convention Centre - a significant milestone in the revitalisation of Darling Harbour.

“This major infrastructure project is moving at a cracking pace - another example of how the NSW Government is building tomorrow’s Sydney,” Mr Baird said.

“By the end of next year, we’ll have  a  state-of-the-art  convention centre that truly befits a global city and cements Sydney as the number one place to do business.

“Along with Barangaroo we are witnessing a transformation of the western edge of Sydney’s CBD as part of a construction boom that’s delivering thousands of jobs.”
