As the highway authority the county council is responsible for writing and implementing the Local Transport Plan (LTP), which establishes transport priorities and objectives within Suffolk. The county council is also responsible for writing and implementing the Transport Asset Management Plan (TAMP).
Suffolk Rail Prospectus
Rail plays a vital and growing part to play in Suffolk’s sustainable development, connecting the county’s main centres of employment to each other, to London and to important regional markets in Norfolk, Cambridge and Essex.
The current Greater Anglia rail franchise started in February 2012 and was scheduled to end in July 2014. However, due to delays in the process for letting other franchises, this is now likely to be extended. The Department of Transport wants the next franchise to be longer, and to help facilitate economic growth.
We therefore have a real opportunity to work with other local authorities in the East of England and with business organisations to articulate what the county needs from rail services to enable the economy to flourish in the future. This is why we have produced the first draft of our rail prospectus after extensive consultation with rail passengers and other stakeholders. We will submit the final prospectus to the Department of Transport when the timetable for the new franchise is known.
