• Infrastructure WA Bill 2019 to boost state economy


    REIWA is pleased the Infrastructure WA Bill 2019 has been formally passed and commends the WA Government for pushing the state’s long term infrastructure plan.

    REIWA President Damian Collins said REIWA has been a long standing advocate for the introduction of Infrastructure WA to ensure Western Australia has the infrastructure it needs for the sustainable growth. 

    “With an independent statutory body being established including the expertise of both public and private sectors, WA can start focusing on the planning and prioritising of major projects and residential developments for the next 20 years.

    “This is a momentous win for our state, one which provides certainty to the current challenging WA real estate market. The passing of the Bill will significantly impact current and potential home owners by taking the politics out of infrastructure decision making, ensuring the most beneficial projects go ahead as planned. 

    “We are extremely pleased with these results and look forward to working with Infrastructure WA as the roll out of projects drives WA’s economic growth,” Mr Collins said.
