The demolition of Sydney’s Allianz Stadium can begin immediately after a judge dismissed an application to extend a court order preventing major works.

The temporary injunction – put in place in February to allow a challenge to the $730m project in the land and environment court – was due to expire at 5pm on Friday.

Those behind the failed challenge applied to have it extended until Monday, when they head to the court of appeal in another attempt to stop the controversial project.

But Justice Nicola Pain on Friday dismissed the application in the land and environment court.

The decision means major demolition work is able to begin immediately.
