Your views are sought on a new Regional Transport Strategy for the Angus, Dundee, Perth & Kinross and Stirling Council areas

The Tayside and Central Scotland Regional Transport Partnership (Tactran) is writing a new regional transport strategy and would like your views on the issues that should shape the strategy.

The regional transport strategy is written in partnership with Angus, Dundee, Perth & Kinross and Stirling Councils identifying the strategic transport priorities for the region.

How, where and when we travel is changing. We need to ensure that everyone can access jobs, education, healthcare and local services, while also addressing the climate emergency and reducing pollution from transport. We need to ensure businesses reach their markets efficiently and reliably. We help people live more active lifestyles.

Tactran want to know what you need the transport networks to do, and where the networks aren’t doing this.

How, where and when we travel is changing.

Dundee Councillor Richard McCready, Chair, Tactran “It is important that we have a strategic framework in place that recognises the urgent challenges of the climate emergency and the social and economic recovery from the covid-19 pandemic. We also need to address the rapidly changing world in terms of how we live and work, and the opportunities technology presents. We need to know what you need the bus, rail, walking, cycling and road networks to do so we can help shape a transport network that meet your and society’s needs.”

Tactran is consulting on the ‘Main Issues’ for the Regional Transport Strategy from 1 June to 26 July. The RTS consultation website and questionnaire is available via the Tactran website.

Following consideration of the needs of the transport networks, further consultation will be taken later this year on the options that could help us deliver the transport networks we need.

About Tactran

A key role of Regional Transport Partnerships (RTPs) is to strengthen the planning and delivery of regional transport developments.

Tactran is one of seven statutory Regional Transport Partnerships covering the whole of Scotland, which were created under the Transport (Scotland) Act 2005. The Tactran region forms an important ‘hub’ lying at the heart of Scotland's transport network and includes the local authority areas of Angus, Dundee City, Perth & Kinross and Stirling which together make up just under 10% of Scotland’s land mass and nearly 12% of the nation’s population.
