Record infrastructure development has transformed Perth

The new Perth Stadium and Sports precinct

During the past decade, record infrastructure investment in Western Australia has transformed Perth and the regions into more vibrant, lively and connected communities.

Perth is undergoing its biggest transformation in 100 years, focused on establishing key destinations with exceptional transport links. From the beach, to the city and the hills, our multi-billion dollar infrastructure investment program provides significant infrastructure investment opportunities in the transport, commercial, tourism, hospitality, retail and entertainment sectors.

Investment in regional areas has revitalised communities and created a strong network of modern population centres across the State.

Developing twelve Strategic Industrial Areas

The implementation of the State’s Heavy Use Industrial Land Strategy has seen the development of twelve Strategic Industrial Areas across the State, with planning and approvals in place to support investment in heavy manufacturing, downstream processing and other strategic industrial activities. 

Key infrastructure assets including, the Australian Marine Complex in the State’s south ensure the ongoing development and expansion of Western Australia’s heavy manufacturing industries including shipbuilding, marine, defence, oil and gas and mining machinery, plant and equipment.

To help fund the next tranche of infrastructure investment, the government has embarked on an ambitious state asset sales program.

Key assets include:
— Fremantle Port;
— Utah Point Bulk Handling Facility;
— Partial stake in the Keystart Loan Book (now seeking Expressions of Interest);
— Crown Land Sales (ongoing);
— Perth Market Authority (SOLD)

Future assets sales may include:
— Power Assets
— Totalisator Agency Board (TAB);
— Government Regional Officer Housing stock; and
— State Vehicle Fleet.

For further information on infrastructure asset sales visit the Department of Treasury.

Land asset sales information is available from the Department of Lands.
