Transport and Infrastructure

The Nationals have held the transport portfolio in the Federal government for years. We know how important it is for people and freight to get around our State.

That’s why we support projects like the Bunbury Outer Ring Road, Albany Ring Road, sealing the Tom Price-Karratha Road and Tanamai Road into the Northern Territory.

That’s why we support projects like a deepwater port at Oakajee, improving access to Bunbury Port and delivering good management of ports along the south coast. We also believe in delivering extensions to Roe highway into Fremantle Port so we can link our agricultural sector with the world. The Nationals WA want to keep Australia moving, and to do that we need roads, rail and ports to continually improve.

The Nationals WA are the party of big infrastructure projects that drive real economic development for our State, and we want to deliver projects like these in government.

Our transport spokesperson is Vince Catania, and can be contacted here.

Regional Airfares

Flights from Perth to regional WA locations are among the most expensive in the world, according to new analysis by The Nationals WA.

A recent Senate inquiry revealed Australia as the 12th most-expensive country to fly in, at $42 per 100km.

Yet when you drill down further, air routes to regional destinations in WA are far more expensive. Analysis by The Nationals WA shows a flight from Karratha to Perth costs passengers an eye-watering $64 per 100km, while Albany ($59), Geraldton ($52) and Exmouth ($51) are similarly exorbitant.
