Assistant Minister for Defence David Fawcett said the works represented a significant investment in Garden Island as the primary home port for Navy ships on the east coast.
“This investment follows previous funding of $213 million for Stage 1 in 2017, with wharf infrastructure works already underway to ensure Navy can continue to secure our region,” Mr Fawcett said.
Defence has engaged Lendlease Building Pty Ltd to deliver the works, with construction scheduled to commence in May for completion in late 2023.
“Lendlease has developed a Local Industry Capability Plan, which will maximise opportunities for local and Indigenous business to be involved, with approximately 2500 personnel being directly and indirectly employed over the construction period,” Mr Fawcett said.
