An im­pend­ing $75 bil­lion worth of in­vest­ment into re­source project con­struc­tion, mostly in the Pil­bara, led to the me­dia re­fer­ring to a sec­ond min­ing boom.

Never went away, they just were go­ing through cost cut­ting and a con­struc­tion lull while they added au­ton­omy and re­duced wages and con­di­tions to max­imise prof­its. Dren­nan Gale

More au­to­ma­tion and ca­sual jobs, awe­some. Jay Don­ald

Great to see, the wage freeze should come to an end. Kim Zuidema Not al­lowed to say boom. Ruth El­lis

Ini­tial es­ti­mates of the amount of as­bestos con­tam­i­na­tion on the Kar­ratha-Tom Price Road turned out to be a stag­ger­ing 38 times higher than ex­pected.

Well it is where as­bestos was orig­i­nally mined. Cal­lum Win­dred

This road has been de­layed and (has) had ex­cuse af­ter ex­cuse since I moved to Parabur­doo over 20 years ago . . . it’s never go­ing to get done . . . stop wast­ing money on it and get­ting ev­ery­one’s hopes up every year! Saman­tha Wil­li­son

Just get the job done and stop blow­ing out the costs. If we had stopped a job or blown out costs due to things like this around Aus­tralia all the time there’d be no roads. There’s as­bestos wher­ever you go around the North West. Karl Wil­liams

Peo­ple were ex­cited to hear Mu­ru­juga Abo­rig­i­nal Cor­po­ra­tion had taken the first step to­wards es­tab­lish­ing its long-planned Liv­ing Knowl­edge Cen­tre on the Bur­rup Penin­sula.

That will be an amaz­ing fa­cil­ity. Well done.
