4 Next Steps


This report sets expectations and objectives for each urban network, strategic node and corridor, which are consistent with national policy, and supported by the evidence set out in Report 1.

The next stage in the review is to generate, sift and appraise options using the STAG framework for interventions which meet these expectations and objectives. The results of this will be presented in Report 3.

The Strategic Environmental Assessment will assess the environmental impacts of the interventions from a strategic perspective.

The outputs from the Strategic Transport Projects Review will allow the Scottish Government to determine its future priorities for investment in the transport network, to ensure that sustainable economic growth can be delivered to allow all of Scotland to share in increased prosperity.
