Commitment of $6.5bn to WA’s Road Network

Did you know that although Western Australia only accounts for 11% of the country’s population, it accounts for over 20% of the public road network? This is just the public road network and not the private roads that service WA’s significant mining and agricultural industries.

The 2023-24 state budget reinforced a commitment of $13.6bn towards the transport infrastructure pipeline, of which $6.5bn will be allocated to the state’s road network over the next four years. 

 

But why do our roads need so much work?
 

1. A growing population and passenger vehicle fleet combined with increasing freight volumes is placing greater pressure on our road infrastructure network.

2. A steady increase in vehicle volumes and weights, combined with historic underinvestment in the road network has resulted in declining road quality and a backlog of maintenance requirements.

3. Ongoing investment in Australia’s mining industry will see continued growth in capital expenditure towards expanding and maintaining the private road and rail network.
 

This is why KEE Group continues to invest heavily in equipment to grow our KEE Surfacing Division. 

Over the last 12 months, our surfacing crews have been to some of the most remote areas in WA. You may have seen them in Wyalkatchem, Denmark, Albany, Onslow, Mt Magnet, Latham, Cape Preston, Tom Price and even West Musgrave, which is almost at the border of WA, NT and SA!

Over the next year, you will see us at a lot more places – so keep an eye out for The K-Team!

To our valued and loyal clients, we sincerely thank you for giving us the opportunities, for putting your trust in our teams and for your relentless support.

Thank you to our magnificent team at KEE Group who Keep Exceeding our Expectations!

Here’s to a prosperous 2024 for all.
