Infrastructure Western Australia - a key election commitment of the McGowan Labor Government - has today released its State Infrastructure Strategy Discussion Paper.

Infrastructure Western Australia - a key election commitment of the McGowan Labor Government - has today released its State Infrastructure Strategy Discussion Paper.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Infrastructure Western Australia (IWA) scaled back work on preparing the State's 20-year infrastructure plan given the current uncertainty.

Following the State Government's success in handling COVID-19 in WA, IWA is now able to get back on track recommencing work on the 20-year plan - starting with the release of the discussion paper for public consultation.

The discussion paper is a key aspect to progressing the development of the 20-year plan and outlines how Infrastructure WA proposes to develop the State-wide long-term infrastructure strategy.

The first State Infrastructure Strategy will provide important advice to government, and will identify Western Australia's infrastructure needs and priorities over the next 20 years.

The release of the discussion paper marks the start of an eight-week engagement period, in which Infrastructure WA will conduct 14 workshops across the State and seek feedback through an online submission format.

Stakeholders from across Western Australia and beyond are encouraged to provide feedback on the issues and proposals outlined in the paper.

The discussion paper and its supporting documents, a feedback submission form and information about State-wide workshops can be found at https://infrastructure.wa.gov.au/DiscussionPaper
