The Scottish Government has emailed about the latest progress on the Strategic Transport Project Review 2 (STPR2) and the opportunities for providing feedback on the latest STPR2 documents.
On 3 February 2021, the Scottish Government published the STPR2: Update and Phase 1 Recommendations report along with the associated impact assessment reports, which can be accessed HERE. These are the first STPR2 recommendations for transport investment. These recommendations focus on transport projects or interventions that significantly contribute to STPR2 objectives, align well with NTS2 priorities, and can be progressed or delivered within the current spending period and will help support a green recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alongside this, the Scottish Government published an updated National Case for Change which contains the options that will be taken forward for further appraisal in Phase 2 of STPR2 as well as an Appendix on COVID-19. Updated Case for Change reports have also been published for STPR2 regions. These reports can be accessed HERE.
The Scottish Government invites feedback on the STPR2 Update and Phase 1 Recommendation Report and the STPR2 options and COVID -19 scenarios. Linked comment forms are provided on the Transport Scotland STPR2 webpages. The comment forms will be available until midnight on 31 March and can be accessed HERE.
The Transport Scotland website pages have also been updated to include STPR2 frequently asked questions and a link to a new dedicated STPR2 Project Page, incorporating interactive Story Maps summarising the regional and national Case for Change reports.
