Trans Pennine route consultation 12 February 2018 - 25 March 2018

Trans-Pennine Upgrade

Highways England is consulting with the public on improving road connections across the Pennines between the Manchester and Sheffield city regions.

The Trans-Pennine Upgrade is a critical part of a £15 billion investment in England's motorways and major A-roads from 2015 to 2020 - the largest investment in a generation.

The existing route provides a key connection between these two important northern city regions, but it suffers from significant congestion, poor journey times and reliability, and high accident rates.

How to respond

The consultation will run for six weeks from 12 February 2018. You can respond by 25 March 2018 by:

Paper response forms and consultation brochures will be available at locations open to the public from 12 February and at public exhibitions. They can be handed in at these events or sent to the address provided on the form.
