Answered on


217. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to the planned 19-bed renal hostel on Porter Street in Kalgoorlie.

(1) Given that the facility was due to be completed in May this year, are reports that the tender for the contract to construct the facility is yet to be awarded correct?

(2) If the tender has not been awarded, will the minister outline what the delay is and table any related documents?

(3) Will the minister give an updated time line for completion of this facility?


I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. I am advised of the following.

(1) Yes; that is correct.

(2) The delay is related to the need to obtain additional site approvals prior to award of tender. Approvals were received this week and the project is expected to commence construction in early May 2019.

(3) The updated program for completion of the facility is May 2020.
