Letter to residents and businesses about ECP site excavation works

The main construction works for the Education and Community Precinct will soon be underway.

Dear Resident/Neighbour/Business,

This letter is to inform you that main construction works for the Education and Community Precinct (ECP) are set to begin shortly. The project is located on the site of the former carpark bounded by Cavenagh St and Woods St and Garramilla Boulevard.

The ECP project is being delivered by Charles Darwin University (CDU) in partnership with the Australian Government and the Northern Territory Government as a major component of the Darwin City Deal. City Deals are a partnership between governments and the community to work towards a shared vision for productive and livable cities.

The ECP will feature modern and flexible teaching and research facilities while also being home to an integrated CDU and Northern Territory Library, an art gallery and public open space.

The first phase of ECP construction will comprise excavation works on the site. Local firm DTA Contractors has been appointed to undertake this work.

The ECP project team would like to draw the attention of residents and neighbours to the approved construction working hours provided for in the project’s development permit. The approved hours are:

  • Monday to Saturday – 7:00 am to 7:00 pm
  • Sundays & public holidays – 9:00 am to 6:00 pm

Where required, trained traffic control staff will be provided to direct traffic.

We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. We will continue to stay in touch and update you of any key project events as the works progress.

The CDU team is excited to work with the community to deliver this new state-of-the-art education development that will serve the Darwin community for generations to come.

Yours faithfully,

The Education and Community Precinct Project Team
