ICC Sydney celebrates continued progress
(Media release issued by NSW Premier Mike Baird MP)
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.”
