Future of Geraldton Port to be mapped out

A master planning process to map out Geraldton Port’s role and infrastructure needs for the next 30 years kicks off with the release of a public feedback survey.

WA Transport Minister Rita Saffioti was in Geraldton to launch the detailed Port Master Planning process for the Port of Geraldton.

The Port Master Plan will take a long-term view of the Port’s planning and infrastructure requirements up to 2050.

Key objectives of the project will be to articulate the future layout of the Geraldton Port, understand infrastructure requirements, consider port-community interface issues and identify operational requirements to meet the future needs of port stakeholders.

The project will assist:

  • Regional and local planning bodies and transport network providers in preparing and revising development strategies;
  • Defence and border protection agencies to identify opportunities that exist at Geraldton; and
  • Port users, employees and local communities to understand future port development.

The master planning process will include broad consultation with the community and stakeholder groups regarding the future of the port.

The master plan is expected to be completed during the first half of 2019. The Port of Geraldton’s Pre-Project Master Planning Survey can be accessed from Mid West Ports’ website.
