Important Information

Strategic transport policy in this region is now overseen by the North East Combined Authority.  This site, relating to transport in Tyne and Wear only, is no longer being updated.  However, it remains in place as a host for the third Tyne and Wear Local Transport Plan, the Rights of Way Improvement Plan and other related documents, which can be found under the Documents section.

The role of the former Tyne and Wear Integrated Transport Authority, along with its property, rights and liabilities, has been transferred to the North East Combined Authority  For the first time there is a single body with responsibility for strategic transport across all seven local authority areas.  The Combined Authority is presently producing a Transport Plan for the region which will supersede the current Local Transport Plans for Tyne and Wear, Durham and Northumberland.

As the new Transport Plan is developed, further details will be provided on the Combined Authority’s website at
