Mark Chellew, Managing director of Adelaide Brighton said cement demand was forecast to continue at similar levels in calendar 2006 as it was last year, with growing pressures nationally for increased investment in infrastructure, which may provide further balance to any regional weakness in the residential sector. "A recovery in the housing sector is anticipated in NSW in the second half of 2006, and this improvement will have a direct benefit on the performance of Hy-Tec and C&M Brick," he said.  
 
"Lime demand in Western Australia is predicted to increase by over 300,000 tonnes by 2010 due to the planned capacity increases in the steel, aluminium, gold and nickel sector."
