NT Government: Middle Arm is the Cornerstone of the Territory’s Economy

11 Apr 2024 1:13 PM | Stephanie Berlin (Administrator)

The Territory Labor Government’s agenda is to get more Territorians working and the Middle Arm Sustainable Development Precinct is cornerstone to that vision.

Middle Arm will bring work and opportunity for thousands of Territorians and the experts tell us it will be a benchmark for similar future developments around Australia.

Today, Chief Minister Eva Lawler and the Territory Government faced the Australian Senate Hearing into Middle Arm.

The Middle Arm Sustainable Development Precinct has been carefully and methodically master planned since 2017 – and it based on the foundation of work.

From the well-paid and secure work in natural gas, minerals processing and advanced manufacturing – the precinct provides secure work.

The Middle Arm Sustainable Development Precinct will boost our economy with 20,000 jobs for Territorians – providing work opportunities in Darwin and right up and down the Stuart Highway.

Middle Arm will support rare earths being mined and processed near Alice Springs, it supports phosphate being mined in the Barkly, and it also supports solar and wind energy generation from the Barkly.

The Territory Labor Government has undertaken some of the most exhaustive environmental, social and cultural assessments in Australia to progress Middle Arm. Middle Arm is being developed as a master planned precinct backed by 200 technical studies assessing its impact, with the plan also integrating industrial scale solar energy projects and will host a carbon capture and storage hub.

Quotes attributed to Chief Minister, Eva Lawler:

“Today I appeared at the Middle Arm Inquiry because I won’t let anything get in the way of Territorians getting the opportunities to work that they deserve.

“Being in secure work is more than a paycheque. It provides Territorians with the satisfaction of contributing to their community, it allows them to plan their future, support their families and be a mentor for others.

“Middle Arm will get the Territory working by creating up to 20,000 jobs in industries such a natural gas, advanced manufacturing and minerals processing.

“We’re backing the industries and projects that get the Territory working and we expect senators from down south to respect Territorians to make decisions for our own economic future.

“I call on the Committee to back Middle Arm and to work with us and make the Precinct a big win for Territory workers and the community.”
