With fast, reliable and resilient transport infrastructure, we can unlock the opportunities to create a thriving, inclusive and sustainable economy.
Transport East is collaborating with the Department for Transport on identifying a programme of investment needed in the newly defined Major Road Network (MRN).
In July 2017 the Government published a Transport Investment Strategy setting out the priorities and approach for future transport investment decisions. Following on from this the Government consulted on proposals to establish a Major Road Network in early 2018, to which individual authorities and Transport East responded.
Transport East will continue to play a key role in working with partners and constituent members to prioritise MRN schemes according to the most pressing regional needs, as well as building upon our already good relationships with Highways England and Network Rail to develop their future investment programmes.
Transport East is currently developing the regional evidence base to support this.
