Our four main transport priorities are seen as essential to facilitate growth in Tees Valley and are now supported and endorsed by Transport for the North. These are:
- A new A19 Tees Crossing and associated enhancements to the strategic A19 corridor
- Darlington Station redevelopment, to be HS2/Northern Powerhouse Rail ready and to improve the gateway into Tees Valley and services across the region
- The delivery of improved East-West connectivity from the A1 to the international gateway at Teesport
- The major upgrade of the Northallerton to Middlesbrough/Teesport rail line to improve connectivity for businesses and passengers
In combination, these schemes could deliver £1billion in economic benefit across the North.
