  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 the need to improve road safety and productivity.

In this context, the State Government recognises the need for an integrated, multi-modal regional transport strategy for the agricultural regions of Western Australia, the Revitalising Agricultural Region Freight Strategy.

The Strategy will identify and prioritise specific infrastructure (including road and rail) upgrades, technological solutions, and policy measures that will help to make freight transport in Western Australia's primary grain growing regions more productive, more efficient, and safer.
