The following comments can be attributed to Director Economy, Investment and Attraction Brett Luxford:

Does Council have an estimate for when the Sunken Gallery is expected to be opened?

Creating a marine-based artwork is complex and requires extensive and detailed planning. There are environmental, design and infrastructure considerations influencing the development and approach to the project. It also needs to gain state and federal approvals, which is taking longer than first anticipated. We are not committed to a specific timeline.

Why has the city needed to review OHS and risk management on the project? Have specific safety issues been discovered that were not accounted for initially?

The City is reviewing a range of factors. There have not been any specific issues that were not initially accounted for. We are focused on ensuring the project meets environmental, cultural, historical, legislative and tourism objectives.
