Golding wins ASMTI civil works package
The company will construct an access road on the south eastern boundary of the training area, which is being expanded under the ASMTI.
Federal Member for Flynn, Ken O’Dowd said the selection of a Gladstone company was great news for the local economy.
“Golding Contractors will hire an additional 15 people because of this contract, as well as engaging further regional businesses for plant, labour hire and landscaping,” Mr O’Dowd said.
Another contract under the ASMTI worth more than $140,000 has been awarded to Tunuba, a joint venture between the Darumbal People and Central Queensland Group Consulting. It covers internal traffic management.
About 160 contracts will be made available over the duration of the Shoalwater Bay Training Area expansion, with a construction workforce set to peak at 450 people.
Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry said 20 companies based in the Rockhampton and Livingstone Shire regions had been awarded work under the ASMTI to date, with contracts valued in the order of $59 million.
The Golding Contractors work will commence next month and is likely to be completed in mid-2021. The Tunuba works will commence in August 2020.
