The North West is at the forefront of an unprecedented wave of infrastructure projects.
Over the next decade over 50 billion dollars will roll out across the Pilbara dwarfing the previous 20 billion mining boom in 2007.
The Pilbara Cities Blueprint builds on the earlier ‘Royalties for Region Pilbara Revitalisation Plan’ and in total, the state government intends to spend $457m in the Pilbara. “The Pilbara cities of Karatha & Port Hedland will soon be among some of Australia’s most modern and vibrant centres, each with a population of 50,000 by 2035″ Brendon Gryllis, MLA.
The Government’s vision is to “create places that people choose to settle on a permanent basis, a place to bring up families with access to high standards of education, health and diverse employment and career opportunities”.
