About Infrastructure WA
The establishment of Infrastructure WA (IWA) is a key election commitment as part of the Government’s
Plan for Jobs.
IWA’s purpose is to provide advice and assistance to the Government on infrastructure related matters. The primary focus for IWA in its initial stages will be the development of a 20-year State Infrastructure Strategy, which will identify infrastructure needs and priorities to support Western Australia’s growing population. This will provide the strategic direction required to encourage private sector investment, facilitate economic growth and create jobs.
Other functions of IWA include:
- Assessing and reporting on major government infrastructure proposals;
- Providing advice to government on infrastructure priorities;
- Providing expert advice on funding and financing options for infrastructure, as well as other infrastructure matters;
- Coordinating the State’s submissions to Infrastructure Australia; and
- Supporting the work of agencies in developing their infrastructure strategies, plans and policies.
Mr John Langoulant AO was announced as the Chair-designate in February 2019, to assist with the establishment and early operation of IWA.
