Plan for Collie-Preston

It’s my pleasure to present to you the Plan for Collie-Preston – a re-elected McGowan Labor Government’s plan to keep Collie strong. 

Firstly though, I’d like to thank the people of Collie-Preston. The past year has been extremely challenging, but thanks to the efforts and understanding of all Western Australians, we have managed to keep our State safe from COVID-19.

By staying safe we have been able to open our economy faster than anywhere in the world, protecting thousands of jobs. 

From day one, WA jobs have been my number one priority and my WA Labor Government has made a significant investment in the regions, to create local jobs, support the local economy and improve services like health and education.  

If you look around Collie-Preston, you’ll see a number of major projects underway, as part of our $28.8 billion pipeline of work.Projects like the $12.2 million Collie Hospital Redevelopment – Stage 2, the $852 million Bunbury Outer Ring Road – Stages 2 and 3, the $85 million Bussell Highway Duplication, the $13.4 million Koolinup Emergency Services Centre and the $10 million Collie Adventure Trails project.As part of my WA Jobs Plan, we will make sure the local jobs created as part of these projects go to Western Australians first. 

We also made TAFE a priority so everyone can get the skills they need. As part of the highly successful Lower Fees, Local Skills initiative, TAFE fees have been slashed by up to 72 per cent, making quality training more affordable than ever, so every Western Australian has a pathway to a good job.The Plan for Collie-Preston continues our record investment in regional WA. 

As you read through the plan, you’ll see our focus on creating jobs and training opportunities, and improving local services for Western Australians. Creating jobs and training opportunities for Western Australians will always be my number one priority, because no one should have to travel over east to find a good job. 

Our Plan for Collie-Preston will ensure our major investment into these areas will continue with further upgrades to local schools, TAFE upgrades, new tourism infrastructure and initiatives, improved health services, a significant investment in local roads, and much more. 

Our Plan for Collie-Preston will ensure that we continue to recover, stronger than ever.
