SMEC’s parent company, Surbana Jurong Private Limited, has today signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) with the City of Townsville. The aim of the MOC is to develop Townsville into a vibrant, smart and connected hub.
Under the MOC, Surbana Jurong will collaborate with the City of Townsville on economic, community and social innovation focused initiatives, including providing consultancy on the digitisation of Townsville and growing aviation links to Singapore.

Townsville is a city with immense potential. The building of defence training facilities near Townsville under the Australia-Singapore Military Training Initiative will provide the seed for the City’s development, from defence-support services, to logistics, transport, R&R facilities and tourism.”
Through its member company SMEC, Surbana Jurong has deep local knowledge. SMEC’s experience in Townsville spans over 15 years, and boasts the delivery of major projects on the Bruce and Flinders Highways, the Northern Rail Line and Port of Townsville, and was most recently appointed as engineer for the Haughton Pipeline Duplication Project.
