Project overview

The Kununurra Depot is one of the first buildings you see when you drive into town. Built in 1985, it is long overdue for refurbishment. Over the coming months, we’ll be engaging local suppliers and trades to modernise the depot, improve its functionality and bring the aged network and communication systems up to scratch.

When the works are finished, we’ll be able to provide you a better customer experience and our people a more enjoyable working environment. The works will extend the life of the depot by at least a further 20 years.
