To ask the Scottish Government when the second Strategic Transport Projects Review will be (a) completed and (b) published.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 29 November 2018
Procurement for the second Strategic Transport Projects Review (STPR2) is ongoing, it is expected that consultants will be appointed before the end of the calendar year. The Scottish Government has committed to complete the STPR2 during the lifetime of this Parliament and that it will be aligned with the next National Planning Framework (NPF4).
A detailed project programme will be drawn up once consultants have been appointed, which will set out planned dates for completion and publication of the review.
