ADF training site gets new ordnance storage
Work is well underway at the Mt Stuart military training area project in Townsville, North Queensland, with the first piece of infrastructure completed.
The $5.4 million explosive ordnance storage earth covered building was funded by Singapore under the $2.25 billion Australia-Singapore Military Training Initiative (ASMTI).
The site will give the Singapore armed forces access to explosive ordnance storage when they train in Australia.
Minister for Defence, Linda Reynolds, said: ‘This project is a significant milestone for the ASMTI, and coincides with the start of early construction work on the new training area near Greenvale in North Queensland.
‘The ASMTI will deliver advanced military training areas in Central and North Queensland while meeting the future needs of the Australian Defence Force. Completion of this facility highlights the strong bilateral Defence relationship between Australia and Singapore being fostered through the delivery of these advanced military training areas.’
