Member for Herbert Phillip Thompson revealed the local line-up today after the Federal Government yesterday announced it was releasing almost $870 million of Defence estate works to the market to bolster industry in the wake of COVID-19.
Mr Thompson said the announcement would be a boost for local construction and maintenance businesses looking for projects.
“These projects include upgrades to buildings and important maintenance on existing facilities across multiple Defence properties in our region, including Lavarack Barracks, RAAF Base Townsville and Ross Island Barracks,” he said.
“The works require a broad range of skill sets and supply chains and I know there are many local and small businesses that will be up to the task.”
