Secondary Freight Route Proposal

The Shire of Narrogin, along with the 41 other Wheatbelt local governments would like to advertise it is working towards an integrated Wheatbelt Secondary Collector Freight Route project. The aim of the project is to develop an interconnected road network for heavy haulage across Local Government Authorities so that freight can be transported across the region linking the "first or final" mile to and from Wheatbelt towns and farms. The goal is to concentrate heavy traffic on specific routes (local roads) which will feed onto Main Roads. These roads have been selected to fit into specific criteria so as not to duplicate existing heavy vehicle routes. The upgrading of the "secondary collector routes", will encourage operators to move onto them ASAP and allow for a more concentrated focus on maintenance programs on this network, which will remain a Shire responsibility. It will still be individual local government responsibility to maintain or upgrade any connecting roads.

To achieve this, the Shires intend to apply for funding to upgrade the selected local roads to a minimum standard and have consistent RAV ratings along routes. This will enhance safety on our roads and alleviate the interaction between heavy traffic and local traffic.

Currently, Shires are analysing the roads identified in this project to ascertain exactly what work needs to be done to upgrade the routes. This will allow us to calculate a total amount for the required funding. We expect the cost to be substantial and will be seeking Federal funding.

We are working in collaboration with our Regional Road Groups (Wheatbelt North and Wheatbelt South), Regional Development Australia (Wheatbelt), Main Roads WA and the Western Australian Local Government Association to develop a business case to have this project added to the Infrastructure Australia priority list, which will enhance our ability to attract funding.

PARVO ADVICE

We have recently had three parvo cases in Narrogin in the past month. Parvovirus is a highly contagious and often fatal viral disease that affects young puppies and unvaccinated dogs.  The virus can be transmitted by any person, animal or object that comes in contact with an infected dog's faeces

We wish to advise the many dog owners in Narrogin to not be complacent with your dogs’ health and continue to:

  • be vigilant with maintaining regular vaccinations
  • keep parks and public places free of dog excreta

If you notice your dog experiencing severe vomiting, loss of appetite, unusual tiredness or bloody diarrhoea, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Chief Executive Officer
