Abstract: Transport Scotland seeks a Consultant to conduct the Strategic Transport Projects Review (STPR2). The services require an independent analysis of Scotland’s multi-modal transport network to assess its current and future performance. The services entail modelling, appraisal and forecasting and taking account of policies from a new National Transport Strategy (NTS2). Network performance would be assessed and interventions proposed to address gaps and shortfalls. These would be assessed against operational criteria and priorities in the new NTS2, Scotland’s Economic Strategy and the Climate Change Plan. A Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) would be required. The review would identify projects across the strategic road and rail networks, active travel, island connectivity and the bus sector. It will align with the next National Planning Framework (NPF4) and inform a 20-year Infrastructure Investment plan for Scottish Ministers. Extensive stakeholder engagement would be undertaken.
