Parliament of Australia < 1 mins read

Under the Public Works Committee Act 1969, the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works will consider a new referral from the Department of Defence into the Facilities to Support Advanced Growler Phase 6 at an estimated cost of $228.2 million. The works will take place in both Amberley, Queensland and Delamere, Northern Territory.

The construction works will deliver new and upgraded facilities for the operation of the electronic attack aircraft EA-18G Growler.

It is anticipated that the Committee will travel to Amberley to conduct a public hearing in relation to the project. The Committee would like to hear from all individuals or organisations interested in the project. The deadline for public submissions is 8 March 2024, with more information available on the Public Works Committee website.

Mr Graham Perrett MP, Committee Chair said, ‘public submissions and the public hearings will allow the Committee to review the purpose, need and public value of the proposed works.’

Please note: the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works is not involved in the tendering process, awarding of contracts or details of the proposed works. Inquiries on these matters should be addressed to the relevant Commonwealth entities.
