The Gold Coast city council has plans to allow building construction to be carried out around the clock, 24/7.

The proposal from the city council which is now being reviewed will allow construction work to be carried seven days a week, all hours of the day and night, something the council believes is necessary if the sporting venues for the 2018 Commonwealth Games are to be completed on time.

But not everyone is happy about the proposed changes and the prospect of hearing jackhammers day and night. The unions are also expected to oppose the changes based on health and safety concerns.

If the proposal goes ahead, builders would need to apply to the council to obtain a permit for extended working hours to allow work after 6:30pm.
