A Strategy for Scotland

The National Transport Strategy is for all of Scotland and sets the overall direction for local authorities and Regional Transport Partnerships.  The Strategy itself does not identify or present specific projects, schemes, initiatives or interventions, but sets out the strategic framework within which future decisions on investment will be made across the public sector.

The Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance (STAG) supports the delivery of the Strategy by providing a framework to identify and appraise transport interventions and reinforcing the focus on reducing inequalities and prioritisation of sustainable travel. The STAG process is designed to provide investment decision-makers with the information they need, in a clear and structured format.
