Defence 201 Northern Territory Economy Defence estimates the new facilities within RobertsonBarracks will cost $140million to construct. Construction is anticipated to begin in mid-2013 and is expected to be finished in late 2013. At the peak of construction, Defence expects the project will draw on a labour force of up to 1200people. The planned works at Robertson Barracks include the construction of the following new facilities: western access road and base entry point off McMillansRoad to replace the existing CampbellRoad entrance; office building for the JLU North headquarters staff; large general storage warehouse; warehouse for loan and repair pool equipment; workshop for the maintenance of vehicles and other equipment; secure storage and maintenance facility; dangerous goods storage facility; regional clothing and kitting store; small quantity facility; mounting base facility; pavement and shelters for the storage for vehicles and other equipment; and in-ground engineering services, roads and perimeter fencing. This initiative represents a significant investment by Defence in the Territory and in Robertson Barracks. Defence anticipates that the consolidation of existing ADF sites into a single facility will result in significant cost savings over the coming years.
