NBN 4 Months Behind Schedule – Conroy To Blame

X

Malcolm Turnbull is claiming that the NBN is four months behind schedule and that the cost of “embarking on this project blind” is being pushed up by the delays.The Shadow Minister for Communications and Broadband has put the delays at the fault of Senator Stephen Conroy who he claims has been dismissing the party’s calls for a “studied approach” to the NBN.

Citing the Coalition’s proposed Productivity Commission cost-benefit analysis of the NBN from last year scheduled for May 31 this year, he said: “We have now almost reached that deadline and, even without conducting a cost-benefit analysis, the NBN Co has not finalised construction contracts that were reportedly due to be settled last December.”

The Gillard government ruled against the analysis last year on the grounds that it would waste time and money.

The criticism from the Coalition comes as the NBN halts its construction tender process due to cost constraints, the quitting of two of its executives and as NBN Co holds talks with Silcar, a joint venture by Leighton Holdings Ltd and Siemens, regarding a take-on of the prime contractor role.
