13/04/2016 - Public asked for views on Transport Strategy for Highlands and Islands

The public is being invited to have its say on the regional transport strategy for the Highlands and Islands, which aims to improve connectivity and boost the economies of local communities. HITRANS, the regional transport partnership, has set a deadline of 23 May for comments on the refresh of its Regional Transport Strategy (RTS), first developed in 2008.

The refresh of the strategy aims to develop a clear rationale for the investment in transport infrastructure and services in rural and peripheral areas. It will also develop a strategy for improving the integration of existing transport provision and reducing the cost of providing these services. Key elements of the new strategy will include Active Travel and Low Carbon Action Plans.

Already views have been fed into the process by Board members of HITRANS, regional community planning partnerships and transport providers to identify how transport by road, rail, sea and air can help the wellbeing of local communities who depend so much on effective transport communications.

Six main issues have been identified in the Main Issues Paper, namely the economy, connecting communities, lifeline transport, reliability and resilience, roles, relationships and responsibilities, and carbon reduction.

A copy of the full Main Issues Report and links to an online feedback form is available on the HITRANS website via the following link http://www.hitrans.org.uk/Corporate/Corporate_Documents/Strategy.

If you have any enquiries please email info@hitrans.org.uk

Note: HITRANS appointed consultants Elyand Skyn to support officers with the preparation of the Strategy in November 2015. Following a presentation and workshop on the Regional Transport Strategy at the last Partnership meeting on 5 February 2015, a Main Issues Report has been developed for public consultation to help inform and shape the updated Strategy.

A copy of the full Main Issues Report and links to an online feedback form is available on the HITRANS website via the following link http://www.hitrans.org.uk/Corporate/Corporate_Documents/Strategy.
