WA Agricultural Supply Chain Improvements – Regional Forum
The Western Australian Government is commencing engagement with communities in the Wheatbelt, Great Southern, Mid-West and Goldﬁelds-Esperance regions to discuss planned and potential supply chain investments to improve the movement of agricultural products from farm to port (or destination).
Supply chain improvements were identified by Infrastructure Australia (IA) as a priority worthy of investment in its 2021 Infrastructure Priority List released in February this year. The WA Government supports such investment and has established a Project Team including representation from all three of the State’s Transport agencies, to develop a business case for submission to IA.
As part of this process, the Project team will host a series of public forums to update key stakeholders on progress and gather their feedback on relevant issues. You should consider attending one of the forums if you are involved in the agricultural supply chain, either as a grower, someone in the road or rail freight industry, or interested in the impact of freight arrangements on regional economies, road safety, community amenity or the environment.
