TRANSPORT: TfGM Transport Strategy 2040

Manchester_bus_192Andrew Gwynne MP is encouraging constituents to voice their opinions on the future of Greater Manchester transport. The consultation drawn up by TfGM allows people across the city region and beyond to have their say on the future of Greater Manchester’s transport network.

The Greater Manchester Transport Strategy 2040 – developed by Transport for Greater Manchester on behalf of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership sets out long-term proposals to create a cleaner, greener, more prosperous city region through better connections and simpler travel. The Strategy considers all aspects of travel from local neighbourhoods to global markets and focuses on creating an integrated, sustainable, and well co-ordinated transport system which supports a wide range of different travel needs.

The consultation, launched by Tony Lloyd, Interim Mayor of Greater Manchester, gives local people the opportunity to shape the future of travel as part of a radical, and ambitious, new approach to planning in support of long-term needs and aspirations.

Andrew Gwynne MP said:

“I encourage Denton & Reddish constituents to make their views heard on the future of transport within Greater Manchester. This is an important time for the city region, and we should make full use of this consultation and help shape a better transport strategy.

“We have an opportunity to ensure our transport network works for us all. The future of transport in Greater Manchester starts now.”
