On Thursday premier/treasurer Mark McGowan announced the state-of-the-art studio would get $105 million in this year’s budget, while $230m would lock in the new traffic bridge.

The budget also included $23m for the staged redevelopment of John Curtin College of the Arts, $6m to tizz up Fremantle Cemetery and the previously announced $35m police station.

“I’m proud of the McGowan government’s vote of confidence in Fremantle as the state’s second city – the future looks bright.”
