Melbourne Wall Collapse at Building Site


Less than 24 hours after a site was deemed unsafe for demolition, a wall at the property collapsed, narrowly missing a passer-by and her baby in a pram.

The incident happened at the Melbourne site of the former Royal Park Hotel, on the corner of Queensberry Street and Howard Street in North Melbourne.

Police said nobody was injured in the incident and WorkSafe is investigating.

A number of people including the CFMEU and a  City of Melbourne building surveyor expressed reservations about the wall before it collapsed.
