Osborne South Surface Warship Facilities. The Government has unveiled the design and turned the first sod for the new surface shipbuilding yard in Osborne, South Australia. This is the latest in a series of significant announcements supporting the delivery of a continuous naval shipbuilding program in Australia. The unveiling of the design for this $535 million project is an exciting insight into the future of Osborne's shipyards that is a result of this Government's $89 billion investment in our future shipbuilding industry. The Government has also finalised the purchase of the initial tranche of state-owned land and facilities and has also received State planning consent for construction of the new shipbuilding infrastructure. The infrastructure expansion and upgrades are a fundamental enabler of the construction of the Future Frigates and are key to delivering a continuous naval shipbuilding program which will support thousands of Australian jobs.
