Kalgoorlie – a city on the move

A NUMBER of initiatives for the Goldfields were unveiled at a WA Cabinet meeting held in Kalgoorlie earlier this month.

Transport Minister Murray Criddle showed off computerised images of a new 200 kilometre per hour Prospector scheduled to run by 2003 which is expected to cut travelling time to the Goldfields capital from Perth by two hours.

Resource Development Mini-ster Colin Barnett announced Cabinet’s endorsement of $1.75 million in funding support for the realignment of the Goldfields Eastern Bypass road.

Lands Minister Doug Shave revealed that LandCorp would manage the first stages of Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s biggest residential and community facility developments.

The project will provide a high standard grassed golf course and up to 2000 residential lots.

Forest Minister Paul Omodei announced that Goldfields station owners would be able

to diversity their income through pulling sandalwood.

The Department of Conserv-ation and Land Management’s Forest Products division has

allocated 16 contracts to pastoralists in regional WA for dead sandalwood.

Premier Richard Court also officially opened WA’s first drill core library in Kalgoorlie.
