The final Revitalising Agricultural Region Freight Strategy has now been released.

  About the Revitalising Agricultural Region Freight Strategy

The final Revitalising Agricultural Region Freight (RARF) Strategy sets the direction for future investment in freight infrastructure in the key agricultural regions of WA.

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 RARF 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 strategy provides a framework and consolidated project packages that prioritise future investment in road, rail, intermodal and port infrastructure projects for the next 10-15 years.

The primary focus of the Strategy is on the primary grain-growing and agricultural regions of Western Australia, including the Mid West, Wheatbelt, Great Southern and Goldfields-Esperance.

The Strategy was released for public comment in June 2019. The ideas and feedback provided have been considered and incorporated into the Strategy below.

The Strategy provides a guiding framework for industry to strategically align with the State’s vision for agricultural freight transport into the future. Key recommendations from the Strategy will be reviewed in five years time.
