Freight

Efficient freight movement is essential to Western Australia's economy. More than 60 million tonnes of freight move in and through the metropolitan area each year, so well-designed transport networks with good access to major terminals and depots are essential for the freight industry.

At the same time, community severance, damage to wetlands, noise, pollution, safety and the devaluing of property are major concerns for the community, and often a point of conflict between the public and industry.
