Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett says an upgrade of rail access to the Bunbury port is necessary if the city is to cope with a pending industry boom.
Projects like the Perdaman Urea Plant, the Worsley Alumina expansion and increased coal mining in the region is expected to place extra pressure on the city's infrastructure.
Mr Barnett says the south-west is responsible for almost $10 billion worth of mining production.
He says Bunbury's infrastructure will need upgrading to cope with the demands.
"In the medium term there will be some expansions to the Bunbury Port," he said.
"This Government is committed to the port access road and that's under construction. There'll be the outer ring-road to take some of the traffic out.
"There's certainly a need for upgrading of the rail access into the port."
