Aberdeen City Region Deal Strategic Transport Appraisal

Prior to the start of the second Strategic Transport Projects Review (STPR2), the Aberdeen City Region Deal Strategic Transport Appraisal Pre-Appraisal Study was on-going. 

The purpose of this study, funded through the Aberdeen City Region Deal and published by Nestrans, was to consider the evidence base for transport related problems and opportunities in the North East, development of key objectives, and a long list of potential transport options. 

This is being used to inform the Nestrans Regional Transport Strategy and also work on Transport Scotland’s second Strategic Transport Projects Review.
