Draft Transport Strategy

The Strategic Economic Plan (SEP), produced by the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP), covers the period up to 2040. It sets out an ambitious growth strategy for the subregion focussing on delivering a £50 billion a year economy in terms of GVA.

The SEP identifies the need for growth to be targeted in key growth opportunity areas including through the identification of four areas of focus:

• Cheshire Science Corridor;
• Mersey Dee Economic Axis;
• Constellation Partnership;
• Warrington New City.

Transport and connectivity will be central to achieving Cheshire and Warrington’s aspirations for growth and supporting economic development, in particular to these spatial priorities. Effective transport networks will be crucial for the continued success of the sub region as an attractive place in which to live and do business.
