Connecting communities in all four nations of the union
Today Sir Peter Hendy has published our Union Connectivity Review on improving intra-UK transport connectivity, to bring communities across the country together as we build back better.
- If we want to truly level up the country then it’s vital that we improve connectivity between every corners of the UK, making it easier for more people to get to more places more quickly.
- The Prime Minister has welcomed the proposal to create UKNET – a strategic transport network spanning the entire UK. UKNET will assess and map out for the first time the key points across the length and breadth of the UK that are essential to stronger, more direct transport connections.
- This will help boost economic growth, support job creation and level up opportunity by expanding the transport system and creating quicker and easier travel for passengers, freight and businesses.
