About the DoT - overview, role and structure
DoT has been operating in its current form since 1 July 2009, after the former Department for Planning and Infrastructure was split into three new agencies.
Now working alongside Main Roads Western Australia and the Public Transport Authority (PTA), DoT recognises that transport is about people - connecting the community and ensuring everyone is able to get to where they need to be.
DoT's 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.
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 coordinate and prioritise the transport related infrastructure that allows our economy to grow.
With more than 1000 employees, we have the expertise to deliver and connect Western Australia, acting with integrity and the public's best interests at heart.

Our strategic direction
Transport is about more than roads, boats, planes and trains - it's about people. People getting to work, home and anywhere they need to be, safely and efficiently.
The Transport Portfolio's three agencies - DoT, Main Roads WA and the PTA - work collaboratively to ensure WA is a great place to live and visit.
DoT's Strategic Direction guides our priorities and the way we do business now and in the future.
We plan and deliver transport solutions for the prosperity of Western Australians.

Structure of the Department
In order to integrate and enhance the coordination of the State's transport operations, regulatory functions and policy development processes, the Government appointed one person to head DoT, Main Roads WA and the PTA.
As head of the Transport portfolio, Mr Richard Sellers is responsible for setting the strategic direction of transport for the State, shaping the development of all major integrated transport plans and leading the implementation of some of WA's most transformational capital projects.
