Strategic Transport Investment Programme (2018/2019)

In July 2013, the Council established a Strategic Transport Investment Programme (STIP) to identify and develop strategic (i.e. larger than local) transport schemes that are needed to support sustainable economic growth in the county. A long list of potential schemes was identified at that time, largely building on technical work to prepare local plans and these schemes were prioritised.


The STIP has been reviewed periodically since 2013 and consideration is again being given to adding new priorities for investment and also removing schemes that are no longer considered to be priorities. Consultation has taken place with elected members and other stakeholders who were invited to put forward suggestions to inform the review. As the majority of funding for strategic transport projects will be subject to scheme appraisal in line with Department for Transport guidance, any new potential priorities will be appraised using a similar standardised approach.


The Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure will be provided with an update on progress with current priorities and recommended to approve a revised Strategic Transport Investment Programme list of priorities, including the need for feasibility work on schemes in 2019/20.
