Our comments on Transport for the North’s Strategic Transport Plan, outlining the changes needed to the North of England's transport infrastructure to 2050.

Our response to the Strategic Transport Plan

Neil Carberry, CBI Managing Director for Infrastructure and People, said:

“The publication of Transport for the North’s Strategic Transport Plan is a significant milestone in delivering the infrastructure that is needed to boost productivity across the whole of the north. Their plans for improved connections between the towns, cities and economic centres that will drive long-term growth, reflect many of the priorities highlighted by businesses in the north.

“Reaching this stage is a testament to the hard work and collaboration of elected and business leaders, who will be looking to see progress continue at pace.

“It is now for other areas and central government to work together to ensure that no region is left behind by the regional growth agenda.”
