TfN: ‘Northern leaders publish plan to transform the region’

On 16th January 2018 Transport for the North launched their new Strategic Transport Plan, now open to public consultation until Tuesday 17th April.

John Cridland, Transport for the North Chairman, said: “For the first time, civic and business leaders and transport operators are speaking with one voice on transport to make sure the North fulfils its potential. Our plan proposes a revolutionary investment programme that will make it possible to travel to high quality jobs. This is an ambitious programme that will improve our roads and railways, and will also drive a sea change in skills development in the North and ensuring we meet that historic gap in investment.”
