The future of Metro and light rail services in North East England

7 July 2016
New metro train

The North East Combined Authority’s vision for transport in the region includes ambitious plans to invest in Metro and explore how expansion of our region’s rail networks could be achieved.

In the attached document we provide a broader policy context for part of that vision: the business cases for a new Metro fleet and the next phase of essential network renewals. It is important that those two projects be seen alongside the larger possibilities to develop our railways they form a part of.

This brochure has been developed by Nexus in consultation with local authorities within the Combined Authority.

If you would like to provide feedback on the development of our Strategy up to now and the possibilities we suggest to extend the reach of local rail and Metro into more communities, please get in touch. You can find contact details on the back page.
