Massive industrial park a win for triple road trains

An industrial estate 50 kilometres northeast of the Perth central business district will have provision for greater B-triple access.

Announced as part of the Western Australian Government’s Muchea Industrial Park Structure Plan, the project is set to provide thousands of future jobs, with draft plans released for public comment.

At over 1,100 hectares, the emerging industrial park is anticipated to create a pipeline of employment opportunities from planning and construction phases through to the establishment of businesses on the site.

The Muchea Industrial Park Structure Plan draft sets out an ambitious vision for future development of the park, bringing more certainty for industry, developers, investors and the community said the State Government in a statement circulated today.

Strategically located at the junction of key freight networks including NorthLink WA, Great Northern Highway and Brand Highway, Muchea Industrial Park is set to be supported by triple roadtrain access, providing a crucial link to the State’s agricultural and mining regions.

The draft plan provides clarity for future development in the park by mapping out five precinct scenarios and addressing factors that support long-term sustainability such as wastewater management and environmental protection.

Planning Minister Rita Saffioti said development of Muchea Industrial Park will drive economic growth in the region around Perth’s fast-growing northeast corridor.

“This structure plan provides a contemporary framework for future industrial development and capitalises on the recent infrastructure investment to improve the road network for freight, taking advantage of the prime location,” she said.

“Long-term job creating projects such as this are crucial as we continue to forge a path for WA’s economic recovery.”
