Some of the residents who were evacuated from their homes following a crane collapse at an apartment complex in Sydney’s north have returned to their homes.

An investigation is also underway into what caused the crane collapse at Wolli Creek on Brodie Spark Drive last week.

Residents of the building were forced to sleep in temporary accommodation as authorities figured out how to safely remove the crane. Residents from the surrounding buildings were allowed to the return to their homes.

Following the collapse, 3 construction workers were rushed to hospital for treatment, one of which had a suspected broken leg.

The damaged building is being assessed by structural engineers.

Meanwhile the CFMEU has called for a ban on the erection of cranes until investigations are complete, concerned that a mechanical or engineering fault may have been to blame.
