THE State Government has announced a $7.5m expansion for the Forrestdale Business Park.
The funding will allow a further 140 hectares of industrial land to be developed, which has been earmarked for private investment.
WA Premier Mark McGowan said the $7.5m would be used to start construction of the key infrastructure and services needed to get the land ready for development.
“Forrestdale Business Park West will provide an important new range of opportunities for businesses seeking quality industrial and commercial land for their operations,” he said.
“Together with the adjoining Forrestdale Business Park, it will form a major strategically located commercial and industrial precinct that will attract valuable economic growth and employment opportunities to Perth’s south-east corridor.”
The 190-hectare Forrestdale Business Park is currently home to more than 100 businesses.
