As Western Australia’s economy continues to re-adjust post-mining boom, a number of new infrastructure and transport projects are planned for the State to accommodate continued population growth.
Developments across the state will be discussed at the 8th Annual WA Major Projects Conference 2017. Now in its 8th year, the conference is Western Australia’s largest major projects and infrastructure event, continuing to attract over 300 delegates annually.
The WA Government’s vision of a growing Perth has resulted in the Transport @ 3.5 million plan sets forth a vision for the next generation of Perth’s transport network. The long-term plan for the city’s transport future looks at how the network can efficiently sustain a growing population, which is approaching 3.5 million and beyond.
The plan will see over $1.8 billion injected into key roads and public transport infrastructure projects that are expected to revitalise liveability in the area through a focus on access to jobs, universities and schools. The plan aims to accommodate the transport requirements of an additional 1.4 million people.
The plan provides a framework for a transport network which can keep people and freight moving as the city continues to expand, taking into consideration future living and working centres. .
WA Department of Transport, Managing Director, Graeme Doyle will discuss transport infrastructure priorities for Western Australia at the WA Major Projects Conference.
