Lavarack Barracks Works

Long Range Patrol Radio System - Fixed Control Station Facilities

The proposed communications facilities to be delivered at Lavarack Barracks require the establishment of a new Fixed Control Station, as Townsville does not have an existing Fixed Control Station.

The works proposed to be undertaken include the following elements:

  • installation of new antennas and masts;
  • construction of a new equipment shelter;
  • installation of cabling between the new equipment shelter and an existing radio room within Lavarack Barracks; and
  • refurbishment of the existing radio room to accommodate the new Fixed Control Station requirements.
