Planning for the Outer Harbour freight vision has entered a new phase with the appointment of Tim Collins as Project Director for the Westport Office.

“Mr. Collins’ wealth of knowledge and experience in port operations will be highly valuable to the Westport Taskforce’s investigations that will guide the State Government’s planning and development of the Outer Harbour port facilities.” Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti said.

“I am confident he will provide strong leadership in developing Westport’s strategic plans for the necessary infrastructure and road and rail links that will maximise long-term economic benefits and future job opportunities.”

Mr. Collins will bring to the role more than 20 years’ experience in port-related strategic planning, commercial management and logistics.

He will be responsible for overseeing the development of the long-term strategic plans for the Port of Fremantle’s Outer Harbour and future Inner Harbour.

Mr. Collins’ background includes leading major State supply chain operations as Business Development Principal for Arc Infrastructure and as Executive Manager Logistics for the CBH Group.

A key part of his role will be to ensure the community and stakeholders are engaged and consulted at every stage of the Outer Harbour development plans.
