Midlands Connect

Midlands Connect is a collaboration with central government that brings together 28 local authorities and 10 Local Enterprise Partnerships from across the Midlands.

Together, the Midlands Connect Partnership and the Department for Transport is developing a transport strategy that identifies the major infrastructure projects needed to improve the connectivity of our region’s key locations so we can help drive economic growth and power the Midlands Engine. The strategy is due to be published in March 2017.
