Blueprint to Drive Freight Network

  • Freight transport demands of major industries identified across the State to 2031
  • Integrated set of short, medium and long-term strategic planning, policy and capital investment project priorities formulated for WA’s regions

Transport Minister Troy Buswell today announced the release of the Western Australian Regional Freight Transport Network Plan, providing a long-term infrastructure blueprint for the development of the State’s regional roads, rail lines and port authorities.

Mr Buswell said the plan articulated strategic planning, policy and capital investment priorities to meet the freight transport demands of major industries and diverse communities across Western Australia to 2031.

“As the State’s population and economy continue to grow strongly, so too does the scale of the freight task in WA’s regions.  By 2031 this task will be more than twice what it is today,” he said.
