The GO SEStran Forth Freight Strategy is being funded by Transport Scotland through the Local Rail Development Fund, with the central aim being to help provide the evidence base for local areas to bring forward schemes that can enter the Scottish Government Rail Enhancement and Capital Investment Strategy pipeline.

The SEStran region is of significant economic value to the Scottish and wider UK economy and is a major generator of freight movements.

Consultants AECOM will be working with SEStran & Forth Ports to deliver this study and explore how an efficient and sustainable freight sector can boost the regional economy and deliver modal shift from road freight to ‘greener’ modes of transport.

The study will run from May 2020 until June when the final report is due.
