Revitalising Agricultural Region Freight Strategy
About the Revitalising Agricultural Region Freight Strategy
Western Australia's agriculture and food sector represents about 10 per cent of the State's economy and continues to grow. There have been significant changes to the grain export industry in recent years, and there is a need to improve road safety and productivity.
The draft Revitalising Agricultural Region Freight Strategy identifies and prioritises specific infrastructure upgrades, and suggests regulatory and policy measures that will help make freight transport in WA’s agricultural regions more productive, efficient and safer.
The primary grain-growing and agricultural regions of Western Australia, including the Mid West, Wheatbelt, Great Southern and Goldfields-Esperance regions are the main focus of the Strategy. (The Perth, Peel and South West regions are being examined separately through the Westport: Port and Environs Strategy).
The draft Strategy has prioritised packages where the most effective infrastructure investments and regulatory improvements can be made to achieve the objectives of having connected and continuous supply chains, seamless integration between road and rail, improved road safety, an optimised infrastructure and policy environment, improved transport efficiency, and regional economic growth.
