NT News - - NEWS -

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.”
