Home to two million people, our region is distinct and diverse. We have an amazing range of urban and rural communities all with a rich history and positive people who want to contribute to moving our region forward.

For years the North East has seen dramatically lower levels of transport investment than other areas of the country. Our draft Plan seeks to address this imbalance and boost spending on schemes which will help to improve the environment and our economy as improving transport for you – the public, however you choose to travel.

Projects include major improvements to regional walking and cycle routes, new train stations, trains and extensions to Metro, increased bus operations and a variety of major road and rail investments.
