Strategic Transport Plan Evidence | June 2017

Transport for the North (TfN) is developing a Strategic Transport Plan and accompanying our Investment Programme to better connect the North of England. The Plan will have a wide ranging and ambitious scope, setting out connectivity priorities right across the North that will help transform economic performance up to 2050. Identification of Strategic Development Corridors and intervention needs on the road and rail networks will help inform the Investment Programme.

Building on local plans and strategies, we have produced new and important pieces of evidence, the Initial Major Roads Report and Initial Integrated Rail Report. These reports will inform the Strategic Transport Plan, identifying the connectivity gaps and challenges of the North’s transport system. Below you can download our factsheets and evidence we have collated and published June 2017.
