The Midlands Connect Strategy has been launched!
The Strategy, developed jointly by the Midlands Connect Partnership and the Department for Transport, sets credible long-term transport investment priorities to help unlock growth and jobs.
Midlands Connect has taken an 'evidenced' approach through a number of technical studies which, in parallel with those of Network Rail and Highway England, will focus on building the strongest economic case possible for strategic transport investment across the region.
Summaries of technical appendices will be available to view from March 31st 2017.

Picking up the Pace - Activating the Midlands Connect Strategy
Midlands Connect is an ambitious initiative to identify and then realise the transport connectivity improvements that the Midlands need to maximise long-term regional economic growth and so in turn, to maximise the economic growth of the nation.
Transport and connectivity are important factors affecting business operations and influencing business decisions. Different business sectors have different connectivity needs but all share a common need for fast, reliable, and cost-efficient transport connections to their customers, employees and suppliers.
Midlands Connect is an ambitious initiative to identify transport connectivity improvements to maximise long-term economic growth in the Midlands.
