Demolition work at Sydney’s Allianz Stadium has been put on hold after a judge issued a temporary injunction delaying the project until next month.

Justice Nicola Pain applied a temporary injunction in the Land and Environment Court on Tuesday restricting hard demolition work on the stadium until March 8, while she considers a legal challenge to stop the stadium from being levelled.

The decision is a win for community group Local Democracy Matters, which has been fighting to prevent the State Government from demolishing the stadium until after the NSW election.

The State Government plans to demolish and rebuild Allianz Stadium in Moore Park at a cost of $730 million in addition to the refurbishment of Olympic Park’s ANZ Stadium.
