Gladstone-based company Golding Contractors has been awarded a contract to support the Australia-Singapore Military Training Initiative (ASMTI).

ASMTI is being delivered at Shoalwater Bay Training Area and is intended to develop and enhance advanced military training areas.

Capricornia Federal Member Michelle Landry said: “Today’s announcement brings the number of companies based in Rockhampton and Livingstone Shire regions who have been awarded work under the ASMTI to 20, with contracts valued in the order of A$59m ($40.4m).

“The ASMTI supports Singapore’s training in Australia. It will deliver advanced military training areas in central Queensland and the establishment of a new training area near Greenvale in north Queensland.”

Under the A$18m ($12.3m) civil works package, the company will construct an access road on the south-eastern boundary of the training area in Australia.

Expansion under the ASMTI will generate 15 new jobs opportunities.

Golding Contractors is scheduled to commence the contract work next month and conclude by June next year.

Australian Minister for Defence Industry, Melissa Price said: “I am delighted to see another local company win a major contract to deliver services central to the expansion of the Shoalwater Bay Training Area.

“Around 160 contracts will be made available over the duration of the project, with its construction workforce set to peak at 450 people.”

Separately, Tunuba has secured a A$140,000 ($96,028) contract under the ASMTI for internal traffic management.

The company has formed a joint venture between the Darumbal People and Central Queensland Group Consulting.

Tunuba will commence work under the contract in August this year.

Last month, the Australian Government awarded three defence contracts worth A$6m ($4.1m) to three central Queensland-based companies to reinforce the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership between the two countries under ASMTI.
