The US Naval Facilities Engineering Command Pacific has awarded a contract worth up to US$24 million for the construction of a parking apron at RAAF Base Darwin.

"In addition to construction contracts, there will be opportunities in sub-contracting, maintenance and supply arrangements that will benefit local suppliers over the next decade," Birrer said.

To support the growing Initiatives, Australia and the US will be investing around $2 billion into existing Defence infrastructure and facilities in the Northern Territory. This is part of an overall Defence investment package estimated to be around $8 billion over the next 10 years.

Construction projects to support the growing US Force Posture Initiatives will be undertaken over the next 10 years, providing opportunities for sectors including construction, professional services, maintenance and logistics.

Infrastructure and facilities development under the Force Posture Initiatives will be concentrated at Robertson Barracks, RAAF Base Darwin and RAAF Base Tindal, as well as training areas and ranges in the Northern Territory.

Work on the apron is expected to be completed by October 2019.
