The NSW Premier has said an announcement on the state’s border with Victoria could be coming this week.
Asked if NSW residents can expect news on the border issue this week, Gladys Berejiklian responded: “Potentially, yes.”
The Premier said her government had a “good discussion” about how quickly the state could move to open the border and hinted there might be an announcement on Wednesday.
“The NSW government will move forward with confidence and speed,” Ms Berejiklian told reporters on Monday.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if we moved quicker with Victoria than Queensland did with us.”

Victoria celebrated its third straight day of zero new local coronavirus infections, and Queensland’s Monday tally was also at zero.
Meanwhile, NSW reported one new local case, becoming the first state to report a new community transmission since the entire nation marked no new cases on Sunday.
The NSW Premier has made no secret of her feelings of disappointment towards her Queensland counterpart and that state’s decision to shut Sydneysiders out of a border reopening last week.
Ms Berejiklian said she had sent a message to Annastacia Palaszczuk congratulating her on her weekend election win and letting her know she is keen to talk about the border issue.
So far she has not received a response, Ms Berejiklian said.
“There is not a single place in Australia where NSW residents should not be welcome,” Ms Berejiklian told reporters.
