Easing congestion in York and Harrogate and improving east to west connections through road and rail networks are the core outcomes we hope to achieve. Our Growth Deal has led to a number of projects which will support these goals.

Much of our area has broadband following the Super Fast North Yorkshire programme that has recently ended. We will now focus our attentions of the hardest to reach locations.

With our partners we are establishing a holistic, long-term transport strategy to maximise the economic benefit of improving our transport links. This will work in collaboration with the spatial planning process happening in parallel.

Enhancing transport links around York is a key priority for our LEP and we will be working with key partners on the dualling of the ring road, to ease congestion and support the York economy.

We will push the rail improvement plan forward, working closely on the plans for HS2 and ensuring electrification on our rail network happens sooner rather than late.
