Nestrans 2040 Panel 1

NESTRANS 2040 Regional Transport Strategy endorsed by the Nestrans Board

The final Regional Transport Strategy for Aberdeen City and Shire has been endorsed by the Nestrans Board. The strategy, which shapes transport policies and actions until the year 2040, has been worked up over the past two years with wide-ranging input from stakeholders, creating a shared strategic vision for travel in the North East.

Chair of Nestrans, Councillor Sandra Macdonald, said, “A key focus of the next RTS is to achieve a 50:50 mode split between car journeys and sustainable options such as public transport, walking and cycling.

“It is critical that our public transport offering is attractive, efficient, affordable and can compete with car journey times. Aberdeen Rapid Transit is part of an aspirational package of over 100 proposals in the strategy which aim to improve journey efficiencies, improve safety and enable access for all.”

The finished document will now be submitted to Scottish Ministers for approval.
