AECOM Construction has received a contract to construct a parking apron at Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base Darwin, the Australian Department of Defence announced on 25 May.

The contract worth USD$24 million is the first of several to be delivered under Force Posture Initiatives in Australia. To support the initiatives, Australia and the US will invest around USD$1.51 billion into existing defence infrastructure and facilities in Australia's Northern Territory as part of an overall defence investment package.

Under the Force Posture Initiatives, infrastructure and facilities development will be concentrated at Robertson Barracks, RAAF Base Darwin and RAAF Base Tindal as well as training areas and ranges in the Northern Territory.

Work on the apron is expected to be completed by October 2019.
