The Commonwealth says it stands ready to help the Western Australian Government by investing in the grain freight network.
The Strategic Grain Network Committee is said to be weeks away from reporting back to the State Government on the network's rail infrastructure needs.
The Federal Parliamentary Secretary for WA, Gary Gray, says the Commonwealth has already made $135 million available in the budget to fund improvements to the network and is looking forward to seeing the committee's recommendations.
"Once something comes out of that, we will then be in a position to make the next decision at the request of the State Government," he said.
"We stand ready to move and have been ready to move for some time and we're confident that Simon O'Brien is working through all of the issues in a good, logical and thoughtful way."
