A teenage worker on a Sydney construction site was crushed to death and his workmate critically injured after a scaffolding collapse.

The 18 year old formworker who could not be accessed initially by paramedics died a few hours after the temporary structure collapsed at the building site at Macquarie Park.

The other worker was rushed to Royal North Shore Hospital in a critical condition.

Tonnes of steel, concrete and meshing littered the site after the 15/17 metre scaffolding tower collapsed.
