View original The Road to Growth

The latest reports, The Road to Growth, from Highways England contain evidence on the economic impacts of the road network, including case studies. Highways England said:

The Road to Growth is our first strategic economic growth plan – a plan for maximising the economic impact of the SRN. It sets out new evidence about the SRN’s relationship with the economy, and explains how we will further increase our economic impact.

The Road to Growth sets out the practical steps we are taking to increase our economic contribution in 4 areas:

  1. Supporting business productivity and competitiveness, and enabling the performance of SRN–reliant sectors

  2. Providing efficient routes to global markets through international gateways

  3. Stimulating and supporting the sustainable development of homes and employment spaces

  4. Providing employment, skills and business opportunities within our sector

With LEPs now responsible for significant amounts of local transport funding decisions, the Transport Knowledge Hub is a timely new tool for local decision makers. At the LEP Network, we know the huge value of giving LEPs a forum to share best practice and engage with other stakeholders, so we are delighted to be involved with a transport-specific project which supports spending decisions that make a genuine difference.
