$1b Opera House restoration

Post by shammy on Sat Mar 21, 2009 6:39 am

THE State Government has agreed to fund a $1 billion project to finally bring the Sydney Opera House in line with its designer's vision.

Although a deal has yet to be signed with the Opera House board, Treasury officials indicated two weeks ago that the Government was willing to provide the money needed for the restoration.

The ambitious plan will see the floor dropped 18 metres in a bid to increase performing space and seating capacity and expand the orchestral pit, which cannot house ensembles properly.

In addition, new wings are to be constructed, along with a new air-conditioning system and disabled access.

The Premier, Nathan Rees, confirmed in an interview that after more than five years of negotiations the project would be considered as part of this year's budget process.
