Movement for Growth

West Midlands Strategic Transport Plan

In June 2016, WMCA approved the West Midlands Strategic Transport Plan 'Movement for Growth'.

Movement for Growth sets out an ambitious plan to greatly improve the transport system to support economic growth and regeneration, underpin new development and housing, and to improve air quality, the environment and social inclusion. It is based on improvements, year in year out, over the long term to an integrated transport system. It is made up of four tiers:

  • National and Regional
  • Metropolitan (Metropolitan Rail and Rapid Transit Network, Key Route Network, Strategic Cycle Network)
  • Local
  • Smart Mobility

TfWM is also developing a series of more detailed policies and strategies, such as to support freight. Other key areas include air quality and to identify measures to support the young, socially excluded and troubled individuals.

Draft 2026 Delivery Plan for Transport

Consultation recently took place on the draft 2026 Delivery Plan for Transport. TfWM will now consider the responses received and a final draft version will be produced for consideration by the West Midlands Combined Authority Board for approval later this year.

The draft 2026 Delivery Plan for Transport comprises the Delivery Plan and two supporting sets of documents:

  • The 2026 Delivery Plan for Transport document
  • 16 Corridor Strategies
  • Four Dashboards of Schemes

The draft delivery plan sets out the schemes which will deliver a large amount of the Movement for Growth strategy.

The delivery plan documents are available to download below:
