Work starts on new Pinjarra depot

Energy Minister Bill Johnston announced that construction of a new $15 million Western Power depot, to service the Peel region, has commenced.

The Minister attended a sod turning ceremony at the new depot today, which will consolidate the Mandurah and Waroona Depots and improve service efficiency in the region.

The facility will be built on a three-hectare lot at Pinjarra Industrial Estate, which was purchased through LandCorp's Industrial Lands Authority for its strategic location fronting Munday Avenue and access to major road networks.
