The WA standards are at

In Perth there's five road types defined:
- Primary Distributor
- District Distributor A
- District Distributor B
- Local Distributors
- Access Roads

And the regional road hierarchy is:
- Primary Distributor
- Regional Distributor
- Local Distributor
- Access Road

There's an interactive map at
http://gis.mainroads.wa.gov.au/roadinformationmap/ but the license is
"The information on this webpage should not be republished or
distributed in any form without the prior written consent of an
authorised Main Roads staff member." so it's not much use for OSM.
