In 2019, Transport Scotland commenced the second Strategic Transport Projects Review (STPR2) to help inform transport investment in Scotland for the next 20 years. The output from STPR2 will help to deliver the vision, priorities and outcomes for transport set out in the National Transport Strategy (NTS2), aligning with other national plans such as the Climate Change Plan and the fourth National Planning Framework (NPF4).
STPR2 involved conducting an evidence-based review of the performance of Scotland’s strategic transport network across active travel, bus, ferry, rail and the trunk road network. The outcomes from STPR2 will:
- Enhance accessibility across Scotland for residents, visitors and businesses;
- Create better connectivity with sustainable, smart and cleaner transport options
- Highlight the vital contribution that transport investment can play in enabling and sustaining Scotland’s economic growth.
