Labor resets infrastructure priorities

Labor's victory in the March state election heralded a major shift in infrastructure priorities for Western Australia, and even further changes are likely as the McGowan government seeks to balance its promises with fiscal reality.

Mark McGowan and his team committed to about 90 new and existing infrastructure projects worth more than $5 billion during the election campaign, according to the Civil Contractors Federation WA.

This includes Labor’s signature project, the $2.75 billion Metronet heavy rail package, which the government aims to deliver over the coming six years.
