Infrastructure WA's role is to provide advice and assistance to the WA Government on infrastructure matters. Looking at the medium to long term, our advice informs infrastructure investment decision-making and supports better outcomes for the people and economy of Western Australia.
The Infrastructure Western Australia Act 2019, which commenced in July 2019, sets out the functions and responsibilities of Infrastructure WA, some of which include:
- delivery, implementation, monitoring and reporting of a State Infrastructure Strategy addressing infrastructure needs and priorities for the next 20 years
- assessing major public infrastructure proposals
- assisting with the development of 10-year annual State Infrastructure Program
- coordinating the provision of information and submissions to Infrastructure Australia (under the direction of the Premier).
