On the job and kicking goals - Buley Rockhole upgrade contractors meet AFL legend
It was a great day on the job for a construction crew working in Litchfield National Park, with a special visit by Australian football legend, Andrew McLeod.
The five Intract Indigenous Contractors' employees are working on the $1.3 million Buley Rockhole upgrade, which includes the relocation and sealing of the carpark and erecting new shaded shelters and footpath.
The project forms part of the $10.43 million investment by the Northern Territory Government to improve facilities at various locations in the iconic national park.
Intract Indigenous Contractors is a majority Indigenous owned, managed and controlled company providing long-term, meaningful employment for Indigenous people across the civil, construction and mining industries.
Mr McLeod is a company director and is visiting the Top End to act as a role model for its contractors working in remote and regional communities.
During his time in the Territory, Mr McLeod also conducted football clinics with school children in remote areas.
