A transport plan outlining the priorities and proposals for the future of travel in Tees Valley has been launched by the combined authority and includes £257m of schemes to improve transport in the region.
The plan covers all forms of transport, from roads, rail and air to buses and sustainable travel such as walking and cycling routes. It looks at major themes of national rail, major roads, connecting centres, unlocking key sites, and local journeys while delivering social equity and protecting and enhancing the environment.
As well as detailing upgrades to the transport network to allow people to get around quicker and smoother than ever before, the plan also considers the freight needs of businesses.
A series of six events will run across Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton from September 9.
Hartlepool’s event takes place on Thursday 12th September 2019 10am-2pm in Middleton Grange Shopping Centre
Copies of documents will be available in municipal buildings across the five Local Authority boroughs and all the consultation documents will be available online until it closes on 20 November 2019.
