Strategic Transport Plan

Strategic Transport Plan Consultation

Tees Valley Combined Authority is the local transport authority for Tees Valley. This is the first Strategic Transport Plan for the region, for the period up to 2029. It has been developed by the Combined Authority in collaboration with our five constituent Local Authorities, Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees.

We’re investing £256.7million into transport projects in the period 2019-2029 and this Plan will help to direct this investment. We have one clear vision:

“To provide a high-quality, clean, quick, affordable, reliable and safe transport network for people and freight to move within, to and from Tees Valley.”

This is an exciting time for transport in Tees Valley, but also a pivotal one if we are to develop the transport system that we need to support our ambitions. This plan sets out our vision, detailing exactly what we are doing, why and how we will deliver the world-class network our companies, people and visitors deserve.

We urge everyone to read this plan, go to a one of the consultation events below and complete the short questionnaire to help shape the future of Tees Valley travel.
