Over the last 18 months, Westport has undertaken an enormous number of studies and built an integrated modelling framework that informed two highly detailed MCA processes. This has funnelled our port and supply chain design options and resulted in a preferred option that provides the best environmental outcomes of those considered.
We have spent over 600 hours engaging with stakeholders, released our Noongar Opportunities and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) strategies, secured future Westport transport corridors through land protection and voluntary land acquisitions, and continued to fund 30 research projects in Cockburn Sound.
To cap it off, last month, the Premier, Deputy Premier and Minister for Ports announced our preferred design for the port and landside network.
In this edition of Navigate our Managing Director reflects on Westport's journey over the last 18 months, we answer your questions about the preferred design, and highlight the first published reports from the WAMSI Westport Marine Science Program.
