In addition to my attendance as a speaker at yesterday’s Future-proofing Perth’s freight network event, it was also announced that a new taskforce to plan an outer harbour in Kwinana has been formed. This group, named the Westport Taskforce, will be made up of experts from a range Government departments. I will chair the taskforce.
Planning Minister Rita Saffioti made the announcement to the attendees of the CEDA event and explained how we will be putting together a plan for the long-term port, road and rail infrastructure needed across the region.
I am very excited to be a part of this team and look forward to getting started on this vitally important development for Western Australia’s economic future.
