Pilbara projects funded in the State Budget
The State Government is set to deliver more of its promises for the Pilbara, with funding secured for several projects in the 2018-19 State Budget
Ahead of the State Election the Labor Party released a Plan for the Pilbara, outlining a number of region-wide promises, as well as nine specific Pilbara projects
The two biggest projects – $50m to seal the next stage of the Karratha to Tom Price Road and $112m for the Port Hedland Marina – were funded in the government’s first budget, but some minor projects still remain uncommitted for the next financial year.
