The second Northern Transport Summit will provide a high-profile opportunity for political and business leaders to unite on what the North needs to go further and faster, connect its people and places and kick-start the levelling up and net zero agendas.

Our relationship with how and why we travel has - and will continue – to change as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. In tandem, the need to decarbonise our journeys and scale-up the transition to low carbon travel will further impact on all our daily lives, travel choices and future mobility.

Transport for the North’s (TfN) Strategic Transport Plan set out what the North needs to deliver inclusive, sustainable economic growth across the North and secure a £100bn increase in GVA and 850,000 jobs by 2050 resulting in an additional 1 billion to the UK economy. It makes sense to invest in transport and infrastructure which works to connect the North’s people and places.

The Integrated Rail Plan not only fell far short on the North’s ambitions to truly connect people and places and level-up but also on its NPR and HS2 proposals. Ultimately, the North needs a long-term, strategic transport plan and serious investment to boost its connectivity and recovery.

The Northern Transport Summit will provide the forum for Northern leaders to come together and call for an integrated transport plan which works to maximise the North’s potential, level-up and scale-up green growth and recovery.
