The 6th Annual WA Major Projects Conference – “Securing the State’s economic future”, continues to be WA’s premier infrastructure event and will take place on 24 & 25 March 2015 at the Perth Convention Centre.

In its 6th year running, this event attracts 350+ delegates from across Australia who come together to discuss the progress, challenges and share best practice solutions from the infrastructure sector.
The WA Government has ensured that the state remains the “engine room” of the nation’s economy with around $150billion worth of projects that have been committed to or are currently under construction.

The state government this year has committed to delivering a solid growth into the areas of health and education, with the budget topping $8billion for the first time into the health portfolio and $188million in 2014-15 into education.

In transport, the “Gateway WA” project will have a significant impact on the state’s economy in the coming years which will ensure more efficient transportation of goods from the airport and freight terminals to the metro regions. About $296million of a $1billion budget for the Gateway WA project will be spent in 2014-15.

There will also be an $883million into road projects, (including the North Link WA - Swan Valley section) and in addition to this, the Government has also committed $1.9billion into public transport services and infrastructure over the next 4 years.

The new Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct will form an integral part of Perth’s transformation and reputation as a world class city. The Perth Stadium and railway station ($1.24billion) project is on track to being open to the public by the AFL season in 2018.

Perth City Link ($764million), Elizabeth Quay ($441.1million) and the new WA Museum ($428.3million) are all projects that will contribute to making the state a more attractive place for more skilled workers and their families.

The WA Major Projects Conference will showcase presentations from key industry specialists from the government and private sectors involved in WA’s key infrastructure projects and will ensure the state remains in the forefront of securing its economic future.

Join us at the WA Major Projects Conference as we examine how the State aims to tackle these critical projects to ensure WA continues sustainable economic growth.
