LandCorp is seeking Expressions of Interest for a head contractor to construct and manage the delivery of the dynamic Ord-East Kimberley Expansion Project's infrastructure. "The expansion of the Ord irrigation area is a key State Government project driven by Royalties for Regions funding and will deliver an extra 8,000ha of irrigated agricultural land to the East Kimberley, bringing employment and investment to the region," Lands Minister Brendon Grylls said. "This project also demonstrates the Government's commitment to our State's indigenous people, with the successful contractor being required to maximise indigenous training, employment and business opportunities as part of the Aboriginal Development Package associated with the Ord Final Agreement." The intent of the Aboriginal Development Package is to ensure the East Kimberley region receives maximum benefit from the project and that this contributes to ongoing sustainable employment for indigenous people in the years ahead.
