regional transport strategy

The Nestrans Regional Transport Strategy (RTS) sets out the challenges facing Aberdeen City and Shire over the next 20 years and how we will address them.  It includes a comprehensive appraisal of the problems and issues affecting transport in the north east and sets clear objectives for improving transport in the region to 2035.

The RTS was first adopted as a statutory document in 2008 following approval by Scottish Ministers.  The RTS built on the previous strategy to 2011, referred to as the Modern Transport Strategy or MTS and the key projects which were already included within this such as the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route. 

In 2012, the Nestrans Board agreed to carry out a review of the RTS to take account of a number of changes in policy and to better align it to the Structure Plan and emerging Strategic Development Plan for the North East. A refreshed RTS was approved by Minister for Transport and Veterans in January 2014.
