The Premier, Honourable Mark McGowan MLA, is the responsible Minister for Infrastructure WA. Under his leadership, the Government is creating and securing jobs for Western Australians, providing quality education and health care, delivering METRONET across Perth, and restoring the State's finances.
The Premier oversees the Government's ongoing role with Infrastructure WA, including providing responses to State Infrastructure Strategies as they are completed and then preparing annual State Infrastructure Programmes that will provide an overview of significant infrastructure investments, needs and priorities over a 10-year period.
Infrastructure WA was established as a key election commitment under the McGowan Government's Plan for Jobs, which focuses on the long term needs of Western Australians to create a stronger State and increase job opportunities. In Infrastructure WA, there is immense potential for a new approach to infrastructure planning that will provide greater certainty for industry and maximise the value of public investment in infrastructure and support a strong economy and jobs.
