The Scottish Regional Transport Partnerships have been included in the schedule of the Public Services Reform (Scotland) Act 2010. The act requires annual publication of certain information and this report advises the Board of the information to be published.
The business plan will coordinate delivery of travel and transport projects over the next 12 months and work to get more partners “on board” with the proposed key priorities for the South East of Scotland’s transport network. Whether that’s walking, delivering goods, getting on your bus or bike, catching the train or driving your car and sharing your journey with others.
Over the next year, we are aiming to continue our journey towards making the South East of Scotland transport network as efficient, effective and equitable as possible and deliver a sustainable transport vision for the region. To do this SEStran will focus on our existing projects and partners including Transport Scotland, Sustrans, Cycling Scotland and Young Scot. The current focus does not preclude SEStran from exploring new opportunities and SEStran will always welcome discussions with new or returning partners.

SEStran, Sustrans, City of Edinburgh Council and East Lothian Council investigated the feasibility of creating an upgraded cycle link between Musselburgh and Portobello. In 2015 the Strategic Cross Boundary Cycle Development Report identified the B6415/ A199 Musselburgh Harbour as a “missing link” in the active travel opportunities within the Edinburgh area.
