Libs unveil $50m plan for Bunbury

Opposition leader Colin Barnett has unveiled a $50 million plan to revamp Bunbury and surrounding areas and has reportedly flagged tax cuts for families and small businesses.

Mr Barnett today revealed a 22-point plan that he said will recognise Bunbury's significance as a major regional centre in the state.

The plan provides $30 million for the Eelup flyover, upgrade to Hands Oval, $4 million for a Breast Cancer Screening and Assessment Clinic, funding for schools, health and law and order.

It also includes the Perth to Bunbury Highway, the Port Access Road and Bunbury waterfront planning.

"The Liberals have a real and comprehensive plan for Bunbury that covers many areas of need including law and order, health, roads, education, major planning infrastructure and sport and recreation," Mr Barnett said.

"Labor's Perth-centric focus has failed Bunbury just as it has failed the rest of rural and regional Western Australia. Bunbury is littered with broken Labor promises.

Meanwhile Mr Barnett has reportedly flagged tax cuts for small businesses and families saying people who pay tax deserve some relief, the ABC has reported.

Mr Barnett said he will unveil his tax policy later in the election campaign.
