The City has ambitious plans to deliver improved transport infrastructure, both in the City but within the wider region. These plans include:

  • Bus Deal;
  • Build on our success as Cycling City to further develop and implement world class walking and cycling network in the city.

The focus on sustainable travel measures has been brought into sharp focus in response to the current pandemic and as such the City needs to move quickly and agilely.
