Pow­ered by Landgate, the app maps out and dis­plays in­for­ma­tion about the 4700 projects be­ing de­liv­ered by the Roy­al­ties for Re­gions pro­gram and can be used to ex­plore projects by cat­e­gory, name and lo­ca­tion.

North West Cen­tral MLA Vince Cata­nia said the app gave re­gional com­mu­ni­ties the op­por­tu­nity to see planned and com­pleted projects and he en­cour­aged peo­ple to use the new tech­nol­ogy.

“Roy­al­ties for Re­gions is trans­form­ing re­gional com­mu­ni­ties, and un­der­pins the State Gov­ern­ment’s long-term com­mit­ment to re­gional de­vel­op­ment, with more than $6.9 bil­lion in­vested across the State since 2008,” he said.

“Roy­al­ties for Re­gions con­tin­ues to build more vi­brant and sus­tain­able re­gional com­mu­ni­ties through in­vest­ment into in­fra­struc­ture, health, com­mu­ni­ca­tions and tourism.”

The app is avail­able on smart­phone, tablet or com­puter at rfrmap.drd.wa.gov.au.
