If it comes off it will be nothing like the town has seen since the hospital was built in the mid-1970s: a $100m project, eight storeys high, 170 dwellings, an 85 room hotel, professional office space, restaurants, cafes – even a 110 place child care centre – all that adjacent to the CBD, on the empty Melanka site, now a painful symbol of the town's economic malaise. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Gas promises are a hardy perennial for Territory pollies but since the building of the Palm Valley to Alice and Darwin pipelines they have amounted to little more than hot air.

ALEX NELSON reports. Image: The territory's first Chief Minister, Paul Everingham, on an election advert in May 1980.
