The Department is proposing to redevelop the Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation (MITA) facility in Broadmeadows Melbourne. MITA was opened in 2008 and is located 15 kilometres north of Melbourne’s central business district and two kilometres east of the Broadmeadows town centre.

The current facility consists of four accommodation compounds, MITA 1 Avon, MITA 2 Bass, MITA 3 Calder and MITA 4 Eildon, each with shared amenities along with associated support buildings, infrastructure and various physical and operational security measures. There is an existing central access spine running east to west providing a distinct separation between MITA 1 Avon and MITA 2 Bass which are south of the spine, and MITA 3 Calder and MITA 4 Eildon which are north of the spine.
The redevelopment will take place north of the spine in the MITA 3 Calder and MITA 4 Eildon location, and these compounds will be fully decanted before construction the rest of the site will remain operational during construction. The new acommodation facilities will be modular in construction.

The redeveloped facility will provide 140 new beds along with associated support buildings, infrastructure and various physical security measures.

Other Instructions:

There will be a mandatory site briefing session.
