A Transport Plan for Growth
With the creation of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority there was a need to bring together the existing Merseyside and Halton Local Transport Plans. A Transport Plan for Growth sets out the City Region's strategic vision and delivery plan for transport and also looks to foster greater collaborative working across the Combined Authority.
Transport is an enabler of growth, it connects people and places and is crucial to the economic success of the Liverpool City Region. The Transport Plan for Growth outlines the £1.7billion investment in transport across the City Region over the next 6 years and sets the direction for future joint working with other sectors within the City Region including:-
- Freight and Logistics
- Housing and land-use planning
- Economic development and regeneration
- Employment and skills
- Health and wellbeing
- Carbon reduction and air quality
- Connecting Communities
- Visitor Economy

A New Mobility Culture for Merseyside - The Merseyside Local Transport Plan
The Local Transport Plan (LTP) provides the framework for the policies and plans that will guide the future delivery of transport in Merseyside and the wider City Region as set out in the Transport Plan for Growth.
The LTP has the following vision:
"A city region committed to a low carbon future, which has a transport network and mobility culture that positively contributes to a thriving economy and the health and wellbeing of its citizens and where sustainable travel is the option of choice."
In order to achieve our transport vision we have set six goals:-
- Help create the right conditions for sustainable economic growth by supporting the priorities of the Liverpool City Region, the Local Enterprise Partnership and the Local Strategic Partnerships.
- Provide and promote a clean, low emission transport system which is resilient to changes to climate and oil availability.
- Ensure the transport system promotes and enables improved health and wellbeing and road safety.
- Ensure equality of travel opportunity for all, through a transport system that allows people to connect easily with employment, education, healthcare, other essential services and leisure and recreational opportunities.
- Ensure the transport network supports the economic success of the city region by the efficient movement of people and goods.
- Maintain our assets to a high standard.
