Through the Northern Territory Government’s commitment to remote sporting infrastructure, Central Australian communities are set to get $2.1 Million investment in sporting infrastructure with tenders awarded in Haasts Bluff, Papunya and Docker River.
“We continue to invest in the Territory’s community assets because we know they build vibrant communities, boost the economy and create local jobs.” Minister for Tourism Sport and Culture Lauren Moss said.
Northern Territory Government is working in partnership with the MacDonnell Regional Council to ensure this funding supports their key priorities and is aligned with community expectations.
Local contractor MM Electrical has been awarded the lighting contract in Docker River with works set to start August and be completed during September.
In Haasts Bluff and Papunya, contracts for the covered basketball courts have been awarded to Harvey Development with works expected to start in July and be completed during October.
“It’s great to see the upgrading of the lights at Docker River and basketball courts at Haasts Bluff and Papunya.” Member for Namatjira Chansey Paech said.
Northern Territory Government is investing $10 Million into remote community sporting infrastructure enhancements throughout the Territory to support strong and healthy communities.
