NEW ROAD TRAIN ASSEMBLY AREA * Australia
* Western Australia - Road train assembly area expanded
Road Train Assembly Area (RTAA) in Forrestfield, just to east of central Perth was opened in late 2016... The $5million project added a further 14,500 square metres of hardstand to the existing RTAA facility and provides an additional 20 parking bays for 36.5m road trains... The completed RTAA now provides 28 parking bays in total as well as 24 hour lighting and an ablutions block... Escorted oversized loads can now travel down the on-ramp from Tonkin Highway, using the purpose-built high wide load crossover in the RTAA to bypass the traffic signalled junction... The Great Eastern Highway, carries up to 25,000 vehicles a day, is the primary east-west freight route for Western Australia and is the key route for travel between the Goldfields, Perth and the south-west region...
