Any ideas for major new transport schemes in Suffolk?

Wednesday, 19th June 2013.

The Norfolk and Suffolk Local Transport Body is today asking stakeholders to comment on what major transport schemes they think should be considered for funding across Norfolk and Suffolk.

The Norfolk and Suffolk Local Transport Body is likely to receive around £39m of funding direct from Government over the 2015-19 spending period for schemes costing more than £2m.

It is today publishing a ‘long list’ of schemes. This long list is being used by the LTB as a starting point to identify the transport projects to which the funding should be directed.

The LTB is inviting stakeholders, including local councils, business, environmental and transport organisations and MPs, to comment on the list and suggest any additional large transport schemes.

All schemes on the long list, plus any suggested by stakeholders, will be formally assessed by the LTB. The LTB will then submit a prioritised spending programme to Government by the end of July.

Subject to approval by Government, this prioritised list of schemes will comprise the major transport scheme spending programme across the two counties for 2015-19.

More information about the Norfolk and Suffolk Local Transport Body, together with the published Long List can be found at www.norfolkandsuffolkltb.org.uk

Comments on the list are welcome and should be sent to transportstrategy@norfolk.gov.uk by midday on the closing date of 12 July 2013.
