Pipeline of work supporting jobs during COVID-19

The Territory Government is making sure local jobs and local business are supported during COVID-19 and during the rebound.

In May 2020, 75 construction contracts valued at $43.1 million were awarded to local business, supporting 193 local jobs.

As of the end of June 2020, there are currently 16 procurements out to market valued at $190 million, which will provide further jobs for Territorians.

These new infrastructure projects include:

  • Upgrades to Yarralin housing;
  • Upgrades to East Arnhem Region housing;
  • Bitumen resurfacing on various Darwin roads; and
  • Upgrades to Urandangi Road in Alice Springs.

The Territory Government is backing Territory businesses; this is why the Buy Local Policy was improved – to create local jobs right across the Territory.

An investment in strategic infrastructure and a steady pipeline of projects will continue to support industry and economic growth.
