Design for cop shop confirmed
THE tender to design the $26 million Palmerston Police Station has been awarded to a Top End architectural firm.
Designing the station will cost $1 million and construction will create 100 jobs.
Ross Tonkin & Associates will design the station, but the site is yet to be finalised.
Chief Minister Michael Gunner said the location would be announced in the “coming weeks”.
“Budget 2017 included an extra $11 million on top of the $15 million already fasttracked late last year for stages one and two, meaning the entire Palmerston Police Station will be completed together and years ahead of schedule,” he said.
“The Territory Labor Government has listened to community concerns about stopping crime and creating jobs and is taking action by delivering this major infrastructure project years of schedule.”
