Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel will conduct special operations engineer training in several locations across Sydney over the period 10 to 12 May 16.
The training will occur at civilian facilities and locations and no live ammunition will be used.
Residents may notice an increased movement of military vehicles, boats and soldiers during this time. Residents should not be concerned if they hear or see these activities occurring as the exercise is part of the normal scheduled training calendar.
The training activities are designed to provide a realistic test of ADF skills and to ensure the ADF maintains the highest level of capability to respond, where required, to support Australia’s national interests.
Defence acknowledges that these activities may result in possible disturbances to local residents, however, wherever possible, the ADF seeks to minimise this disruption.
The ADF has consulted with the relevant local authorities in preparing for this training.
The ADF would like to thank the local residents and businesses for their continued support and cooperation during this important training.
