Corporate Governance 56 DiraiFirsDsftiriyicthojiire DMauu'agjeme'raft Infrastructure management covers all aspects of asset manajgement including capital works, minor new works and repairs and maintenance activities. Infrastructure management is vital in ensuring the Agencys, assets are developed and maintained to meet governments priorities and business needs. The Agencys outcomes have a strong reliance on asset management, in providing protection of and public use or access to the Territorys natural and cultural assets. This ranges from Parks and Reserves visitor infrastructure such as walkways, car parks, shelters, park signage and water treatment areas to permanent collection houses in the Museums and Art Galleries of the Northern Territory. Additionally, the Agencys Heritage Conservation Output Group assist the community in preserving heritage assets through a $10 million heritage repairs and maintenance program, which is funded over 10 years. This funding, combined with the provision of advice and regulation, allows heritage listed infrastructure to be maintained for future use. Such activities in 2006-07 included repairs to: Fannie Bay Goal (Darwin); Cape Don Historical buildings; Tennant Creek Telegraph Station; Adelaide River bridge; Old Stone Hut (Alice Springs); Daly Waters Aviation Complex; The Residency (Alice Springs); Old Court House (Alice Springs); Connellan Hangar (Alice Springs); 1873 Cypress Pine Overland Telegraph Poles (Pine Creek); and Darwin Town Hall Ruins and Darwin Government House. Challenges in 2006-07 The remote locality of the Agencys infrastructure and assets poses significant challenges for infrastructure management, while climate extremes and natural disasters also have a decided influence on activities. Future Priorities in 2007-08 Infrastructure priorities for 2006-07 include: Continued works at the Mary River Wetlands desalination plant, east of Darwin, which includes construction of new weirs and upgrading existing weirs for saltwater intrusion control works. Abolution facilities at Nitmuluk National Park, near Katherine. Develop park infrastructure at Channel Point, which includes a boat launching facility, camping ground, roads, parking, interpretive displays, Ranger office accommodation and storage. Upgrade and expand visitor facilities in the West MacDonnell National Park, near Alice Springs, which includes additional shade shelters, presentation areas and ablution facilities. n o r t h e r n t . e r r i T o r v .
