  • In September quarter 2010, total new capital expenditure in WA was 13% higher in trend terms, and 20% higher in seasonally adjusted terms, than in the corresponding quarter of the previous year. The increase was due to a large rise in new capital expenditure on Building and Structures, partially offset by a decrease in expenditure on Equipment, plant and machinery.
