A science-based approach
As Westport is considering the entire supply chain for the new port, work is underway to investigate, study and assess the freight network’s environmental and heritage impacts from the terminal in Kwinana, along the Thomas/Anketell corridor to Tonkin Highway.
The work will also identify and investigate opportunities to minimise impacts and create social benefit opportunities in Cockburn Sound, around the port and along the road/rail freight network.
These studies will inform the:
- Framework to inform decision-making as the port and freight network’s planning and design progresses
- Westport Mitigation Strategy, including proposed measures, offsets and resilience building initiatives to consider
- Westport Sustainability Strategy to help reach the goal of the most sustainable port in Australia
- Environmental Impact Assessments required for relevant approvals
