Air 5431 Facilities Project

Western Australia Proposed Works

RAAF Gingin

The proposed works include refurbishment of the existing tower. The airfield systems functions are accommodated in the lower levels of the tower. There is no radar sensor at the site as radar coverage is provided by RAAF Base Pearce.

Air traffic control tower. The proposed works will involve improvements and services upgrades to the existing tower to accommodate the Phase 3 equipment.

RAAF Base Pearce

The proposed works will include construction of a new sensor equipment building at Eclipse Hill, and a new airfield systems building and tower at RAAF Base Pearce.

Sensor equipment building. The proposed sensor equipment building will be a single-storey structure housing a generator, uninterruptible power supply room, switch room and communications room.

Airfield systems complex. The proposed airfield systems complex will be a single-storey facility with administrative and maintenance functions. The existing airfield systems complex will be demolished following the commissioning of the new facilities.

Air traffic control tower. The proposed new tower is a 25-m high multi-level facility accommodating a control cabin, external observation deck and a crew rest area, toilet, kitchenette and mechanical plant room. The existing tower will be demolished following the commissioning of the new facilities.
