Connecting our Region

Tackling congestion with interchange improvements, new transport hubs and an active travel network will support the development of the Black Country's economy and ensure businesses and people are connected.

With extensive local transport links, and nationally important motorway and rail infrastructure, our location on the network provides a competitive edge to our economy. With the close correlation between supplier delivery times to the manufacturing sector and productivity growth in the sector, the effectiveness of the local transport infrastructure is an important element in maintaining international competitiveness in our growth sectors. 

We are developing a programme of interventions to significantly improve the Black Country’s connectivity, support the provision and improvement of employment sites, support the growth of our centres and contribute to our longer-term connectivity vision, including HS2.
