Joint statement – $223 million to unlock hundreds of local WA infrastructure jobs

To show its support to construction jobs across Western Australia, The Morrison and McGowan governments have invested an additional $223 million to deliver shovel-ready infrastructure projects and urgent road safety upgrades. The investment infrastructure would play a critical role in the Commonwealth’s JobMaker plan and help the Western Australia economy.

According to Prime Minister Scott Morrison, for state and territory governments to invest in more major infrastructure projects across Australia, is a key part of the JobMaker plan to rebuild the economy and create more jobs.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the Government had worked closely with State, Territory and Local Governments to identify shovel-ready projects to help reinvigorate the economy and get money flowing into jobs and businesses as soon as possible. In Western Australia, investments would be in critical projects along the Great Eastern and Bussell Highways, Exmouth Road and Toodyay Road.

Western Australian Premier Mark McGowan said the Regional State Road Safety Improvement Program would see the two Governments invest $100 million across the State to deliver improvements over the next year.

The jointly funded package is supported by investments from the Commonwealth ($176 million) and WA Government ($47 million). It is estimated to support more than 1,000 jobs during construction.
