Defence is delivering critical infrastructure and engineering works at Garden Island (East), Sydney, New South Wales under a CIRP. The purpose of the works is to address significant condition, capacity and compliance issues with the wharves and base-wide engineering services.

Defence is delivering the CIRP works in two stages:

  • Stage One will demolish the existing Cruiser and Oil wharves, and build a new wharf in a revised alignment in their place. The new realigned wharf will be equipped with a crane, engineering services and wharf furniture to replace those removed during demolition; and
  • Stage Two will remediate the remaining wharves as well as base-wide engineering services such as the electrical and fuel systems.
