MyJourney West Yorkshire is Metro's 15-year Local Transport Plan (LTP). It sets out West Yorkshire’s transport needs and ambitions until 2026.
We published MyJourney West Yorkshire in April 2011 alongside the first 3 year Implementation Plan (IP1) for delivery of the LTP in the period 2011- 2014. IP1 utilised the Integrated Transport and Highway. Maintenance capital block allocations from the DfT and was shaped by the overall Plan’s Strategy, Objectives and ‘Big Ideas’.
During the first two years, we have made good progress in delivering interventions to support economic growth, low carbon travel and people’s quality of life.
The Implementation Plan (IP2) for the next 3 year period, 2014 - 2017, is being developed now. We have started early to allow for reflection on IP1 progress, consideration of new developments expected to influence the shape and emphasis of IP2, and to give time to identify, sift and consult on ideas to arrive at a set of interventions that will make best use of the funds available to deliver desired objectives. This early development of IP2 will also allow time to start to develop the individual schemes in detail ready for early implementation in the IP2 period. IP2 is being developed alongside the proposed West Yorkshire Transport Fund (WYTF). The anticipated level of funding for IP2 is approximately £150 million.
We would like your opinion on the emerging shape of IP2, the Programme Areas, key ‘must have’ interventions and priorities for funding.
We are not consulting on the detail of specific schemes and locations at this stage. This will come once we have had your input on the overall shape of IP2.
There is an online consultation that can be completed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ip2consultation
In addition to the online consultation the LTP partners will also be consulting via existing stakeholder groups.
The consultation period runs until Friday 5 July 2013.
There are 10 draft Programme Areas that we have identified to help organise our spending plans.
Within each of the Programme Areas there are some ‘must have’ interventions that we think it is necessary to spend money on.
We have also identified a range of funding, as a proposed broad allocation, which we believe to be necessary to deliver desired outcomes in each Programme Area.
