THE McGowan government has announced $30 million funding to jumpstart the long-stalled East Perth power station redevelopment.
“For too long this site has been left to waste on the banks of our river,” WA premier Mark McGowan said of the commitment.
“I want to see it progress because it provides a unique opportunity to create something special for our state.”
An expression of interest process for what to do with the museum started four years ago but it stalled.
It’s a tough nut because Western Power infrastructure surrounding the site is a big put-off for developers, and the $30 million will go towards relocating it.
Perth state MP John Carey told the Voice: “It has enormous potential to be another great precinct and tourist attractor of our city… the premier is very clear, and I’m very clear, that the main building must be open to the public.”
