The Western Intermodal Freight Precinct (WIFP) will dramatically improve efficiencies in local, national and international freight movement by bringing national warehouse and freight precincts closer to freight terminals and industry. It will reduce the number of trucks and trains required to transport interstate freight into Port Melbourne, reduce congestion and attract investment to this major industrial precinct. Its construction is crucial to the Inland Rail project.
The business case for the WIFP is expected to be completed early 2021.
LeadWest will continue its advocacy for the WIFP.
