Shetland Transport Strategy
The Shetland Transport Strategy has now been approved by the Scottish Government Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change.
The strategy will be used to:
- accurately represent the vision for Shetland’s Transport;
- provide an assessment of the existing situation;
- set out a programme of activities, projects and interventions, making the case for investment and infrastructure;
- guide and co-ordinate transport-related activities in Shetland; and
- make the case for specific projects that meet funding criteria from the Scottish Executive through specific grants.
The Transport Strategy has been developed to fulfil the requirements of the Transport (Scotland) Act 2005. It also responds to guidance provided by the Scottish Executive in March 2006 for the Preparation of Regional Transport Strategies and earlier guidance issued by the Scottish Executive in February 2005 for the Preparation of Local Transport Strategies.
Key Performance Indicators
As part of the development of Shetland’s Regional Transport Strategy (RTS) a number of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were put in place, in order to measure progress on delivering the aims and objectives of the strategy. The data from from these indicators has been collated into a document which can be viewed here.
