Find out about the Department of Transport, including our role, structure, programs and projects. You can also access corporate documents here, including our annual report.
The Department of Transport began operations on 1 July 2009, after the former Department for Planning and Infrastructure was split into 3 new agencies. The transport function is integral to business and commerce and important for social interaction and connecting communities.
Our key focus is on operational transport functions and strategic transport planning and policy across the range of public and commercial transport systems that service Western Australia. With more than 1000 employees, we have the expertise to deliver and connect a complex, inter-related economic and social network.
We connect people with goods and services through an intricate system of roads, railways, airports, ports and waterways and educate and regulate to keep them safe within those networks. We co-ordinate and prioritise the transport related infrastructure that allows our economy to grow.
