Plans to transform transport across the north of England

View original Plans to transform transport across the north of England

Transport for the North has announced new draft proposals outlining northern infrastructure for the next 30 years. The Strategic Transport Plan (STP) and the Investment Programme seeks to rebalance underinvestment by investing up to £70 billion to 2050. The funds seek to better connect the whole of the North, increase spending on strategic transport by around £50 per person in the North each year to 2050 as well as flagship programmes such as the Northern Powerhouse Rail; new major roads; improving existing rail network and the continued roll out of smart ticketing. The investment would seek to compliment local and regional transport strategies and promote low-carbon travelling.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
