Transport for the North launched to improve transport connections in the region

A new regulatory body – Transport for the North (TfN) – has been established with an aim to improve transport connections between cities in the north of England.

The group has identified Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, Hull and Newcastle as cities between which it will develop plans for road, rail and freight links.

TfN was announced at last week’s Budget as part of a strategy aimed at improving key roads, including upgrading parts of the M6, M1 and M62 to four lanes, and enhancing the A1 to continuous motorway standard between London and Newcastle.
