Tools down for Central Coast tradies

Adam Weinent

The new health order that came into effect overnight have some local builders concerned that the blanket approach is unnecessarily hurting local tradespeople.

Central Coast tradies have spent the weekend and today, Monday securing their work sites, as lockdown rules tighten.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch MP defended his government’s decision to close all construction sites, saying that they are designed to halt the spread of the delta variant of COVID-19.

Crouch called on all tradies who have been in Sydney to get tested for coronavirus as soon as possible. This he says will allow him to argue the case to have the region excluded from the red zone.

    Wake up NSW health
    Central Coast are Not part of Sydney, we are 80km from Sydney and more then 100km from any “hot spots”,
    We are divided by a huge river and national parks, Sydney residents are not allowed here.
    We have been tested negative and have 2 shots of vaccine, we have no community spread Covid..
    How long must we endure this lockdown?

    How is the Central Coast part of Greater Sydney, do these politicians have any clue about the geographies of NSW.? Who makes these blanket decisions ? It’s putting small businesses out of work and all the independent tradies, (of which there are many in the Central Coast) also out of work. It’s killing the children’s education and future job prospects and imprisoning people in small apartments and in sometimes violent circumstances, when the alternative may be going out only to get (illegally) arrested by policemen “doing their job’….what kind of Australia is this? A dictatorship?

  3. Central Coast residents being punished by their southern Sydney neighbours inability to be trusted to do the right thing.

    Adam Crouch is too spineless to break with the party line, so we’re stuck here in lockdown with no cases.

    Why Gladys “pork barrelling” Beresjiklian played politics with COVID instead of learning from other states and locking down is beyond comprehension. We’ll be stuck in lockdown for months, and the Liberal voter still won’t hold them accountable and vote them out.

    Well why is Wideline Windows at Tuggerah having their drivers car pool still working doing different jobs
    Yes …. Still doing it this week!!
    (All these drivers were in Sydney last week)
    This is not a community helping each other !!

  5. I am a tradie and we were all shut down, but why were some of them walking around Bunnings. I didn’t see mitre 10, clubs,a number of small businesses and the sporting fields were not open.
    Doesn’t Bunnings support the tradies. But when it comes to big business no matter what the pandemic, business and profit comes first.
