Regional Transport Strategy

The Regional Transport Strategy sets out a vision for a transport system for the South West of Scotland that delivers the internal and external connectivity required to sustain and enhance the region's economy and communities whilst minimising the impact of transport on the environment.


SWestrans has a statutory duty to publish a strategy for transport within its region.  Following the publication of the National Transport Strategy 2 in 2021 a new Regional Transport Strategy (RTS) for SWestrans has been developed. 'SWestrans Regional Transport Strategy 2023-2042' sets the policy and framework for transport delivery in Dumfries and Galloway for the next 20 years.

SWestrans RTS was agreed by SWestrans Board on 30 June 2023 after an extensive consultation exercise, and approved by Scottish Ministers on 7 March 2024.  The RTS covers the period up to 2042 and can be viewed, along with supporting documents, by accessing the links below:
