Transport for the North

The PM and Chancellor’s visit to Leeds this Monday to launch HS3 marked not only a greater focus from Central Government on the Northern economies, but also the first steps of a return to regional governance for transport, with the announcement of the creation of Transport for the North – a body that will cover the five city regions of Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield and Newcastle.  Whilst this announcement follows hot on the heels of the City Growth Commission’s recommendations for greater devolution to Metro regions (a report which makes for interesting reading) the Government’s...

Full Steam Ahead for Local Growth

HS2’s central long-term contribution to economic growth outside London will be to boost the availability and accessibility of jobs. This I believe will work in 3 ways.
