  • Tradies are being urged to stop work today as Sydney is set to be hit with scorching summer temperatures, with the mercury pushing close to 40C.

    Tradesmen across the city are well within their rights to put down their tools today as hot weather blasts the state, resulting in dangerous working conditions.

    While western Sydney is no stranger to summer days in the high-30s or low-40s, the CBD is often far cooler aided by winds coming off the Pacific Ocean.

    However Tuesday’s heat is set to be relentless across the entirety of the city with the CBD reaching 37C and Penrith, in the west, 38C. Brisbane will be hot too, reaching 35C and then 36C on Wednesday.

Some residents have yet to return to their homes, while an initial investigation found there were a number of "design and construction issues" that could have led to the damage.
  • For many of us, the reality of Australian homes now sits many storeys up in the sky. High-rise apartment buildings have sprouted across the nation’s cities. In recent weeks – on Christmas Eve at the Opal Tower building in Sydney and on February 4 at the Neo200 Building in Melbourne – that reality has turned into the nightmare for hundreds of residents of being turned out of their homes with little more than the clothes they were wearing.
  • The continuing decline in Australia's construction sector eased only slightly last month.
