Avenues to Opportunity

Economic activity in the Great Southern is highly dependent on the capacity and efficiency of the region’s transport network as it connects domestic and export markets and serves strategically-located industrial hubs. Roads, rail, shipping and air services are all necessary for the development of the region.

Albany Regional Airport, the Albany Ring Road and potential intermodal facilities are key project components. Continued improvements to arterial roads and strategic industrial transport links including rail are essential for tourism, agriculture and industrial activity.
