SPT welcomes Strategic Transport Project Review 2 (STPR2) and Clyde Metro.
SPT has welcomed today's Strategic Transport Project Review 2 (STPR2) announcement which also includes plans for a Clyde Metro to be developed.
Chair of SPT Councillor Dr Martin Bartos, said,
“On behalf of SPT, I welcome the Cabinet Secretary’s announcement that a ‘Clyde Metro’ scheme will be taken forward as a project in the national Strategic Transport Projects Review (STPR2) projects.
“SPT looks forward to working with Transport Scotland and Glasgow City Council on the details of this scheme which has the potential to transform the public transport network across the Clyde Valley.”
STPR2 sets out recommended transport interventions for the next 20 years and is one of the mechanisms for delivering the Vision, Priorities and Outcomes of the second National Transport Strategy (NTS2). STPR2 is also an important tool for achieving the Climate Change Plan Update commitment to 20% reduction in car kilometres by 2030 and contributing to Scotland’s Net Zero Greenhouse Gas emissions target by 2045.
STPR2 is now out for consultation until 15 April. You can share your thoughts at: bit.ly/2QVia8f
