Business briefings as ASMTI construction lifts off
Defence Minister Linda Reynolds this week announced the start of ASMTI construction work at Greenvale in North Queensland and the Shoalwater Bay Training Area in Central Queensland.
Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry said two Rockhampton-based companies had been awarded contracts worth $5 million to deliver fauna management and fire breaks as part of the expansion of the Shoalwater Bay Training Area.
“Meanwhile in North Queensland, a Charters Towers based company has been contracted to commence initial fencing and signage work of the expansion, worth around $750,000,” she said.
Additional work packages for fencing, potable water supply, waste consumption, fuel supply, consumables and quarry products will be awarded as part of an anticipated 200 sub-contract packages that will be available over the next five years in Central Queensland.
Meanwhile Defence will hold information sessions in the Charters Towers and Townsville regions this month as part of the next release of work packages in North Queensland.
