This paper discusses the history of post-World War II development of Western Australia focussing on roads and electricity supply as a case study in the engineering development of Australia in the post-war period. It suggests that what happened in Western Australia may have happened elsewhere in Australia because of the effect that the war had on Australian planning for post-war development and the experience that politicians, planners and engineers had had during the war when the country was mobilised to achieve unified goals.
