Project R8099 RAAF Base Tindal Redevelopment Stage 6 (R8099 TDL Redev) and Project R8109 United States Force Posture Initiatives (USFPI) RAAF Base Tindal Airfield Works and Associated Infrastructure (R8109 KC-30A Facilities) are being delivered as two separate Components under one Managing Contractor Contract as follows:
Component 1 – R8099 TDL Redev; and
Component 2 – R8109 KC-30A Facilities.

Project R8099 TDL Redev (Component 1)
The objective of Project R8099 TDL Redev Project is to maintain the capability of the Base, which can broadly be categorised into the following imperatives:
a. providing the Base infrastructure and trunk engineering services necessary to support the growth in demand from expansion in Base activities;
b. replacing facilities or equipment at the end of their useful and economic life, which no longer perform to the required specification;
c. reducing ongoing maintenance costs, by installing more efficient or modern infrastructure;
d. addressing deficiencies in current operational reliability requirements;
e. improving personnel comfort and morale, this is particularly important at RAAF Base Tindal due to its remote location, and hot and humid climate;
f. providing a safer work environment, overcoming a number of Work Health and Safety risks; and
g. contributing to improved compliance with relevant Australian and Defence Standards.
Additional living-in accommodation to support deployed AEW&C personnel will also be delivered by the Project.

Project R8109 KC-30A Facilities (Component 2)
The objective of Project KC-30A Facilities Project is to increase the capacity for the KC-30A Multi Role Transport Tanker operating from RAAF Base Tindal. The upgrade to airfield and associated infrastructure enables the platform to operate effectively and efficiently.
The improved airfield infrastructure delivered by the KC-30A Facilities Project will also serve to support the Enhanced Air Cooperation by improving accessibility of United States Air Force aircraft to the Base.
The solution to the objective will aim to increase Runway 14/32 length, width, shoulders and strength. In addition a realignment and upgrade of Taxiway A, a new air movement terminal, new aircraft apron, new fuel farm and associated other infrastructure services is to be provided to efficiently operate KC-30A in addition to the existing use by 75SQN and other transiting aircraft.
