The Liberal National Government will spend $15.1 billion investing in roads and public transport infrastructure between 2008-09 and 2018-19.
Premier Colin Barnett said in 2015-16 alone, the Government would spend $1.6 billion on roads and public transport, including $5 million to plan for 300 new C-series railcars to double the State’s rail fleet over the decade from 2019 at a cost of $1.2 billion.
- Forrestfield Airport Link - $2b and 2,000 jobs - due for completion in 2020
- Perth Freight Link - $1.6b and 11,000 jobs - due for completion in 2019
- Perth City Link rail and bus works - $569.3m and 3,000 jobs - due for completion 2016
- $5m to plan for 300 C-series railcars
Funding the airport rail link is included.
I guess this means the link will go ahead despite various people in WA stating the airport was in a downturn.
