Stuart Smith 2014, News

Following the approval of Nestrans’ Regional Transport Strategy refresh (RTS) by Keith Brown Minister for Transport and Veterans, the final document has been published and shared with key partners in the region. Those receiving the document include MPs, MSPs, councillors, transport operators and other key stakeholders.

Nestrans Chair, Councillor Peter Argyle, “To ensure the actions contained within the RTS are delivered we need to work closely with the Scottish Government, local authority partners, the private and voluntary sectors. The refresh does not change the direction of the 2008 RTS, with the long term objectives remaining the same, it allows us to ensure the transport implications of the Structure Plan and new Strategic Development Plan are incorporated.”

The document sets out the transport challenges facing Aberdeen City and Shire over the next 20 years and how they will be addressed.  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.
