NBN NOT TO BLAME FOR ASBESTOS!
One of Australia’s leading asbestos lawyers believes Telstra faces a massive unquantifiable liability from the removal of ageing asbestos lining from hundreds of thousands of telecommunications pits and pipes.
Turner Freeman managing partner Armando Gardiman said Telstra had been long aware of its potential exposure to liability for asbestos-related claims arising from the pits, as it had been paying out former lines workers who contracted the deadly mesothelioma disease since the mid-1980s.
‘HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PITS IN PLACE’
They,that is TELSTRA sold the idea of NBN using their infrastructure and were handsomely paid for its use , did they tell the NBN about the asbestos, I doubt it?
Should they have replaced these pits years ago, yes, long before NBN was even thought of, yes!
Something smells at TELSTRA why haven't they fixed this problem
