Tom BrownPrint Page
A monument commemorates former Alice Springs Project Manager Tom Brown, a very well respected Central Australian who made a huge contribution to the region . The memorial is surrounded by Tom Brown’s favourite flower Desert Rose, and will overlook the Tom Brown roundabout from Rotary Park.
Tom Brown oversaw major infrastructure during his time working for the Australian Government and the Northern Territory Government. During his 30 years working in this region he managed many projects including the construction of the Connellan Airport at Yulara, 150 kilometre sealing and widening of the Lasseter Highway, and Alice Springs town infrastructure - the roads, water, sewerage, not to mention the roundabout which bears his name.
Tom virtually worked on every road in Central Australia including a complete reconstruction of the 200km section of the Stuart Highway between Alice Springs and Ti Tree. Tom Brown retired in September 1996 and died in 2009.
