WA State Budget 2012-13: Building the State
Building the State - Transport projects key to future
The Liberal-National Government will invest $3.9billion on new and ongoing transport projects and programs in 2012-13, including $105million on new projects to address traffic congestion in Perth and a $97million injection into road safety projects across the State. Treasurer Christian Porter said Western Australia's transport system was vital to the State's economic development and ongoing prosperity. "The creation of a sustainable and integrated transport network is an integral component of the transformation of our State, and the Liberal-National Government views transport projects as a critical investment in WA's future," Mr Porter said.
