  Outcome 1: Integrated transport systems that facilitate economic development - Overview

[DoT Image]
[DoT Image]

DoT develops, integrates and regulates Western Australia's transport systems and infrastructure, which is integral to servicing the State's business and social communities.

DoT determines the location of major transport routes and infrastructure, their suitability for a range of transport services and how each route integrates into the broader transport system for boats, trains, aircraft and vehicles.

Providing regular and adequate public transport air services to key Western Australian regional communities is the responsibility of the Freight, Ports, Aviation and Reform Directorate. DoT ensures all aircraft that carry passengers for regular public transport or charter purposes within the State are licensed annually.

DoT measures its effectiveness in meeting this outcome through the:

  • Percentage of containerised freight transported via rail in relation to total metropolitan container movements to and from Fremantle Port.
  • Percentage of regional Local Government Areas (LGAs) that have access to regular public transport air services between the LGA and Perth.

This indicator informs how effectively DoT's container rail subsidy is shifting the transportation of containerised metropolitan freight from road to rail, thereby reducing heavy vehicle movement on arterial port roads. A significant proportion of metropolitan container movements occur on roads between the key freight precinct of Kewdale-Forrestfield and Fremantle Port.

The indicator compares the proportion of containers transported by rail through the North Quay Rail Terminal with the total number of containers moving through Fremantle Inner Harbour.

Actual
2018-19 Budget Target 2018-19 Actual
Percentage of containerised freight transported via rail in relation to total metropolitan container movements to and from Fremantle Port. 14.6% 15.2% 16.1% 16.3% 20.0%

Reasons for significant variance

There was no significant variance between the 2017-18 Actual and the 2018-19 Budget Target.

The growth in Actual container rail volumes in 2018-19 compared to Budget Target was driven by State Government increasing the Container Rail Subsidy from $30 per twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) to $50 per TEU from January 2018 and an excellent grain harvest.

  Percentage of regional Local Government Areas (LGAs) that have access to regular public transport air services between the LGA and Perth

This indicator measures DoTís effectiveness in meeting its responsibility in ensuring regional communities have access to regular public transport (RPT) air services to Perth for economic and social purposes.

The outcome of this indicator is measured by determining the percentage of Local Government Areas (LGAs) that have a population greater than 500 and are within 250 kilometres of an airport by sealed road which receives two or more RPT air services per week in each direction.

The high percentage achieved indicates that regional communities have access to RPT air services within 250 kilometres of the airport receiving two or more RPT air services per week. A reduction in the percentage of LGAs being serviced by RPT air services would indicate that services to remote communities are not being maintained.

Actual
Percentage of regional Local Government Areas (LGAs) that have access to regular public transport air services between the LGA and Perth. 93.5% 93.5% 91.6% 93.5% 91.5%

Reason for significant variance

There was no significant variance between the 2018-19 Budget Target and the 2018-19 Actual or between the 2017-18 Actual and the 2018-19 Actual.

A minor variance between the 2018-19 Budget Target and the 2018-19 Actual is due to an increase in the number of LGAs with a population greater than 500. In 2017-18 Mukinbudin and Mount Marshall LGAs population grew above 500. Both LGAs do not receive RPT air services within 250 km. This information wasnít available at the time of setting the 2018-19 Budget Target.

The 2018-19 Actual data was further adjusted to 91.5 per cent as a result of Wyalkatchem no longer having a population above 500 but maintaining access to RPT air services within 250km.
