The second phase of the build of the new Post Entry Quarantine facility in Mickleham has started.
Construction of the avian facility is now underway following the recent ground breaking at the site where the compound will be located. The Avian facility will be completed by 2018 and will replace current facilities at Torrens Island and Spotswood.
The facility at Mickleham will combine live bird and hatching egg capabilities in a single building envelope. The envelope will contain a series of individual and completely separate containment areas, all with separate access.
