Deadline 17th April
Strategic Transport Plan – Connecting and growing the economy of the North of England. Draft for Public Consultation
The case for pan-Northern strategic transport improvements, which are needed to support transformational economic growth. This will allow the North to increase its productivity, create more job opportunities and make a greater contribution to the UK economy. It requires the delivery of a sustained investment programme across the North to build infrastructure, strengthen skills, harness innovation, and encourage smart technology. The plan is now open for a thirteen week period of consultation running until 17 April. The final version will be published later this year and submitted to the Government for ministerial consideration.
