Transport Minister Troy Buswell explains the state government's new ports strategy.

Port authorities to merge, miners to lose board seats

How they will hate this in Port Hedland, but especially Dampier/Port Walcott, but I agree it will be a very good thing for the area. At long last other port users such as the shipping companies, shipping agencies, providores and other suppliers to vessels will have a better chance to be heard (I hope)and hopefully the monopolies of the big companies will be somewhat reduced.
