About the DoT - overview, role and structure
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.

Structure of the Department
The Government acted to integrate and enhance the co-ordination of the State's transport operations, regulatory functions and policy development processes by appointing one person to head its three key transport agencies:
- Department of Transport.
- Main Roads WA.
- Public Transport Authority.
As head of the Transport portfolio, Mr Richard Sellers is responsible for setting the strategic direction of transport in the State, shaping the development of a number of major integrated transport plans and leading the implementation of some of WA's most transformational capital projects.
