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 2030. 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, quick, affordable, reliable, low carbon and safe transport network for people and freight to move within, to and from Tees Valley”
To do this our objectives are:
– Improving access to employment, skills, training and education
– Improving access to healthcare, leisure, culture and retail
– Enhancing health and wellbeing
– Improving community safety and security
– Supporting the development of 22,000 new homes
– Supporting the creation of 25,000 new jobs
– Improving productivity through enhanced freight connectivity
– Providing quicker, more reliable journeys
Carbon Reduction and Environment:
– Reducing carbon emissions
– Enhancing and protecting the natural and built environment
– Improving air quality
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.
The implementation plans are being refreshed and updated in view of COVID-19 and other changes to transport policy since these were originally published in early 2020. New versions will be published shortly.
