The ABC redevelopment is well underway with Stage 1 nearing completion.

The new bulding and refurbished radio studios are scheduled for completion in February 2003. Works underway in December include partition walls, ceilings, painting, joinery, services fitoff and civil works externally.

Stage 2 involves the refurbishment of the TV building. This stage is scheduled to commence in late March 2003. Stage 2 involves the refurbishment of the existing building whilst keeping the operating TV studio and its control rooms alive in the process.

The Company is working closely with ABC staff and technicians to achieve our first major milestone next year.
