Examining Road and Rail Projects at Leading State Conference

At a time when signs of market confidence are beginning to be seen across the country, the conference is perfectly placed to highlight exclusive opportunities and provide insightful presentations across the public and private sectors. Delegates from government, road, rail and port authorities, construction, architecture, consultancies and finance industries will come together to learn, network and ultimately work together towards achieving a common goal: transforming Western Australia into the best and brightest it can be.

The upcoming WA Major Projects Conference will provide attendees with the freshest updates on the major projects that are growing and enhancing Western Australia.

Alongside DevelopmentWA’s SubiEast project, the conference will delve into the road, rail, airport, mining and energy projects that are so critical in driving Western Australia towards its full potential. Speakers with invaluable industry experience will deliver in-depth project overviews, the latest timelines and exclusive opportunities within the infrastructure sector.

From Main Roads Western Australia, project directors Dominic Boyle and Mark Hazebroek will provide an overview of the Bunbury Outer Ring Road project and the huge benefits that commuters will reap upon its completion. To be completed in three sections, with the fourkilometre central section completed in 2013, the 27 kilometre stretch of highway will connect the Bussell and Forrest highways. This important road upgrade will shave 15 minutes off the journey between the north and south of Bunbury and avoid 13 sets of traffic lights.

The project is set to make travel times faster and smoother, helping Western Australians get to where they need to be safely and efficiently. Boyle and Hazebroek will provide the most up to date information on the project and reveal how the Bunbury Outer Ring Road will improve the daily commute for so many Western Australians.

Crucial to a growing state is an effectively-planned transport system. Connecting people to their jobs, amenities and recreational spaces quickly and efficiently is absolutely critical, particularly when coupled with a fast-growing population.

Anthony Kannis is the project director for the highly ambitious METRONET project, which will see a staggering 72 kilometres of new passenger rail and up to 18 new stations implemented to make Perth better connected. Transforming 5000 hectares of land surrounding the new stations, the project will stimulate growth and provide previously disconnected communities with access to new and exciting opportunities.

The WA Major Projects Conference will condense topics ranging from road and rail to health and waste management into two days, bringing together industry experts and key stakeholders for in-depth discussion, exposure to new opportunities and lucrative networking sessions.

The 11th Annual WA Major Projects Conference will be held on the 4th and 5th of March at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.
