Construction of a new combined air traffic control (ATC) tower and fire station has begun at Broome International Airport in Australia.

The A$20m ($19.6m) four-storey tower will be equipped with advanced technology to withstand cyclones.

Airservices CEO Greg Russell said the tower will improve safety and efficiency by providing controllers with better airfield views and more modern equipment.

Broome airport will accommodate seven air traffic controllers and 20 aviation fire fighters.

The ATC tower will also include a rain water collection system for landscape irrigation and vehicle cleaning.
