Corridors
A46 corridor

The A46 is one of the country’s most important trade routes. Businesses along the corridor generate £115 billion each year, almost half of which comes from industries dependent on a reliable road network.

We are building on the first stage of our long-term strategy to improve the road, by working on a more detailed set of recommendations.

A50/A500 corridor

The A50/A500 is a nationally significant manufacturing corridor, home to global firms like Toyota, JCB, Rolls Royce, Bombardier, Michelin and Pirelli, as well as Stoke-on-Trent's world renowned ceramics industry.

They all depend on a reliable road network to thrive. Improvements to the corridor are vital to support jobs and housing, and improve air quality.

A5 corridor

The A5 is a crucial east-west corridor across the Midlands and an important alternative route to our congested motorway network.

Our initial work focuses the potential for improvements on the section between the M6 near Cannock and the M1 near Rugby, to help accelerate growth along the corridor.

Innovation and Technology
Smart Ticketing

A region-wide move to smart ticketing can ensure we are putting the passenger first. The technology needed to make it a reality is already transforming the way people pay for and gain access to public transport.
