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.

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.
