To be + past participle in English

I have one doubt about the structure “to be + past participle”

In some cases I have seen ‘to be + past participle’ replaces ‘is to be + past participle’

Example:

this work is to be done ⤏ this work to be done.

My question is, does ‘to be + past participle’ replaces ‘was to be + past participle’ also?

Like example:

this work to be done ⤏ this work was to be done.

in any of the cases can we use like that?
