Led by CIHT Scotland, this webinar will provide an overview of Scotland's Strategic Transport Projects Review with a presentation from Paul Junik, Head of Infrastructure Planning at Transport Scotland.
The second Strategic Transport Projects Review (STPR2) will inform transport investment in Scotland for the next 20 years. STPR2 is a Scotland-wide review of the strategic transport network across all transport modes, including walking, wheeling, cycling, bus, rail and car, as well as reviewing wider island and rural connectivity.
STPR2 will help to deliver the vision, priorities and outcomes for transport set out in the National Transport Strategy (NTS2) and will align with other national plans such as the Infrastructure Investment Plan, National Planning Framework (NPF4) and the Climate Change Plan.
Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the STPR2 programme was revised and now taking forward a two-phased approach to the reporting of recommendations for future transport investment opportunities. This presentation will provide an overview of the work completed to date and outline the next steps followed by the opportunity to ask your questions about work that is central to the future of the transport network in Scotland.
Transport planners, engineers, transport operators, future mobility specialists and professionals across the private and public sector.
