Investing in our Community

Following the 2022 election, the Albanese Labor Government has set about investing in outer suburban communities like ours. 

We know many Australians are feeling the pinch. That’s why helping with the cost of living is our top priority, doing so without adding to inflation.

The Albanese Labor Government is working for Australia by:

• Supporting Australians with the cost of living with cheaper childcare, cheaper medicines, extended paid parental leave, fee free TAFE and working with the WA Labor Government, this year every household will receive $700 in energy bill relief 

• Investing record amounts into Medicare and bulk billing.

 Building new homes, investing in affordable housing and making renting fairer.

 Tackling climate change by legislating to reduce emissions.

 Managing the economy and creating jobs in challenging times.

Since my election in 2016, I've been working to ensure our community has access to the infrastructure and services we need to build a better Burt. 

Zoom in and explore my interactive map of Burt to find out about funding I've secured for our community.

Some of the big ticket items include:

  • Armadale Road Duplication - the construction of a two-lane second carriageway for 6.96km of Armadale Road between Anstey Road and Tapper Road. This includes upgrade works at three intersections; grade separation on Nicholson Road; construction of a principal shared path; street lighting and drainage; provision of two-metre sealed shoulders; as well as significant service relocation and associated works.
  • Armadale Road Bridge over Kwinana Freeway to ease congestion and improve access
  • Removal of the Denny Avenue Level Crossing that's provided a new safe east/west connection under the existing rail line, improve traffic flow, reduce congestion and revitalise the Kelmscott town centre. 
  • The Thornlie-Cockburn Link will be Perth’s first east-west cross line connection, connecting the Mandurah and Armadale/Thornlie lines and the construction of the future Nicholson Road and Ranford Road stations.

Some of the funding I've secured falls into areas that left the Burt electorate at the 2022 election. We're expecting these boundaries to be readjusted slightly following the 2025 election. I look forward to being a strong voice for you - no matter if you're new to the area, or you've been with me along the way in one of Burt's "OG" Suburbs.
