Regional Transport Strategy 2015-2036

Our Regional Transport Strategy sets out a vision for improving the region’s transport infrastructure, services and other facilities over the period to 2036. Our Vision is to deliver:

a transport system, shaped by engagement with its citizens, which helps deliver prosperity and connects communities across the region and beyond, which is socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable and which promotes the health and well-being of all.

The Tactran Partnership Board and Minister for Transport and Islands approved the finalised Regional Transport Strategy Refresh in July 2015 giving it statutory status.
