Transport authorities are pleased that there has been no asbestos used in production of the Waratah trains.

The ABC’s 7.30 program unveiled that asbestos had been discovered in  10 heavy haul trains brought in from China despite certification showing that they were free of the deadly material.

The Rail Tram and Bus Union is calling on the  NSW Government to ensure that the Waratah train fleet is asbestos free.

The Union’s Bob Nanva says the Waratah fleet is partially manufactured by China and as a result they are not confident that any component is free of the deadly building material,

Nanva has called on the government to hold an audit if they cannot say for sure whether or not the trains are asbestos free.

“And if they can’t do so and can’t give the public that assurance then we will be asking for a full audit of these trains,” he said.

“To ensure there aren’t any asbestos components buried deep away potentially putting the public and workers at risk.”

A statement from Transport for New South Wales it is confident there is  no asbestos  present in the fleet, and has inspectors working out of China to ensure that no prohibited materials are used to manufacture the parts.
