Strategic Transport Plan Briefing Session – Chester

Date & Time: Monday 10th July 2017 at 15:00 – 19:00

Location: Queens Hotel, Chester, CH1 3AH

Cost: Free

Event Overview

Transport for the North are developing a Strategic Transport Plan and accompanying Investment Programme to connect the North of England. The Plan will have a wide ranging and ambitious scope, setting out connectivity priorities right across the North that will help transform economic performance up to 2050.

Building on local plans and strategies, TfN has produced two new and important pieces of evidence, the Major Roads Report and Integrated Rail Report. These reports will look at the current transport networks, how they are performing, how they support the Northern economy, how they would cope with future growth, and what the gaps are. The conclusions will inform the Strategic Transport Plan, identifying the case for investment in the North’s transport system.

TfN will be publishing this evidence and a number of other reports in June, and as part of this are holding a number of drop-in events in towns and cities across the North. This is an opportunity for local businesses, elected members, and interested groups to find out more about TfN’s work, feedback whether the evidence reflects their experience, and discuss TfN’s future plans and how they might support them.

In Chester, this will be held in the Queens Hotel, CH1 3AH, on the 10th July.

There will be a presentation from 3pm to 4pm followed by a drop in between 4.30pm and 7pm.
