Opposition leader Mark McGowan has committed a future Labor goverment to work with the private sector to develop a 20-year infrastructure strategy for the state but the proposal has been rubbished by Premier Colin Barnett as "a glossy document".

No where close to being in Government and these guys are already highlighting how they will waste money on committees, policy groups, sub-committees and a range of other initiatives designed to show they had a go without taking any decisions at all. Never again Labor.

With the blaze' comment from Mr. Barnett, "this government actually gets things done" I'd ask him to go and speak to the following; OPR - the political football API - Anketel point port. Geraldton Port Authority, already congested prior to tonnage increase. The residents of the new suburbs being built with no access to rail infrastructure, Ellenbrook especially, they were told to travel to Midland to catch the train, on a line that is the most unreliable on the network and the most risk when it comes to security. The residents of Brighton, Alkimos, Yanchep and Two rocks, where they have been told they will have to wait another 5 - 10 years for new secondary schooling, despite being the fastest growing areas in Perth. Not too mention the ridiculous widening of the freeway in the south, instead of increasing rail capacity.
