What will travel look like in the future?
The next regional transport strategy will take us through the next twenty years, up to 2040.
Nestrans have spent the last year working with our members, partners, stakeholders and the public to produce a draft strategy. You may remember taking part in some of our discussion topics last year or reading the feedback we received.
The draft strategy has been informed by this engagement, option appraisal work, and looking at best practice from elsewhere. For a period of ten weeks from 5th August to 16th October 2020, we consulted on the draft strategy with individuals and organisations.

What happens now?
Now that the consultation has concluded, all submissions will be reviewed and any amends will be made to the RTS. A summary of the consultation will go before the Nestrans Board meeting on 4th November, followed by the next version of the RTS at the December meeting. If approved, it will then be submitted to the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity.
You can keep up to date on the process via this website and on social media with #Nestrans2040.
