Australian construction community urged to support bushfire relief

Vital infrastructure in bushfire affected communities such as roads, rail lines, bridges, schools, hospitals and communication facilities will be rebuilt with the help of $1 billion.

Australia is facing its largest bushfire crisis in the nation’s history.

Since September, bushfires have ravaged approximately 14.6 million acres of bushland, towns and national parks. According to reports, 21 people have been pronounced dead, more than half a billion animals have been killed, and more than 1450 homes destroyed with figures set to climb.

In the wake of the bushfires that continue to devastate the country, Inside Construction is urging the construction community to come together to support the national initiatives contributing to the relief efforts.
