Tees Valley Combined Authority is asking people across the region for their views on its transport plan.
‘Connecting the Tees Valley’, the Combined authority’s Strategic Transport Plan Framework was presented to members of the transport committee on 30th November, signalling the beginning of a public eight-week consultation.
The Framework sets out the transport priorities up to 2026 and offers the opportunity for stakeholders, interest groups and the public to help inform the development of the Strategic Transport Plan.
The transport vision for the Tees Valley is ‘to provide a high quality, quick, affordable, reliable and safe transport network for people and freight to move within, to and from the Tees Valley’.
To do this the Combined Authority aims to:
Bill Dixon, chair of the Tees Valley Combined Authority transport committee, said: “Transport is central to helping the Tees Valley deliver its ambitious plans to grow the local economy.
“Over the next 10 years we want to create 25,000 new jobs and build 22,000 new homes and the Strategic Transport Plan is vital to support this aim and we welcome feedback from all interested parties.
“The Combined Authority’s transport committee will continue to ensure that transport connectivity across the Tees Valley is a priority for decision makers, regionally and nationally.”
