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 two years working with our members, partners, stakeholders and the public to produce a new strategy. You may remember taking part in some of our discussion topics last year or reading the feedback we received.
The 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.
We then spent time amending the draft based on these comments and responding to those who provided feedback.
A final version of the strategy was presented to the Nestrans Board on 10th February 2021, and was approved by board members.
What happens now?
The final strategy will now 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.
