Major Road Network

In June 2017, Transport for the North published its Initial Major Roads Report, which has informed our Strategic Transport Plan for the North. Working with our Partners across the North of England, we have mapped out a Major Road Network for the North of England. This identifies the local and strategic roads which are vital for economic growth, it connects both current economic centres and future economic growth locations, as well as major transport hubs to enable multi-modal journeys. With local connections alongside strategic roads, it accounts for about 7% of the roads in the North. These priority routes have informed the recommendations in our Strategic Transport Plan for the North, including the development of seven Strategic Development Corridors.

Transport for the North has been working with Highways England and the Department for Transport on three strategic road studies for the North, which are being carried out as part of the Roads Investment Strategy: The Northern Trans Pennine Routes Study, The Manchester North West Quadrant Study and The Trans Pennine Tunnel Study.
