Among the major plans to be carried out by the Government will be the development of Burswood Peninsula, which will include the new 60,000 seat Perth Stadium worth $1.8 billion and the relocation of Scitech from West Perth to the area at a cost of $15 million, both by 2018.

Two train stations, a north and south, will be built in the area to ease congestion as well as a footbridge across the Swan River from East Perth.

Passengers on their way to the airport will be delivered to the front door of the consolidated terminal by 2018.

The $1.9 billion project will branch off the Midland line at Bayswater, down Tonkin Highway and tunnel under the two main runways to an integrated station within the terminal area.

A $1.8 billion light rail network – Metro Area Express (MAX) will also be built across the metro area to connect inner city suburbs, including Victoria Park, to the city.
