Future Major Schemes Programme
The following figures and tables describe the Major Schemes programme.
Figure 1 Â‘Summary Programme LTP 2005 Submission Part 1Â’ and Figure 2 Â‘Summary Programme LTP 2005 Submission Part 2Â’ describes our proposed programme for the rest of the LTP period, with indicative net costs and delivery dates.
Table 1 Â‘The Relationship between Approved and Provisionally Approved Major Schemes, the Transport Shared Priority and LTP2 ObjectivesÂ’ and Table 2 Â‘Major SchemesÂ’ show how each Scheme relates to the four themes of the Transport Shared Priority (TSP) and our LTP objective of ‘ensuring that the transport system underpins the economic revitalisation of the West Midlands Metropolitan Area’. It is important to note that, whilst the benefits are shown, they have not been used in setting our targets and trajectories.
We have also summarised some of the key environmental implications of our Major Schemes in terms of noise, landtake and landscape as well as air quality. These issues are covered in more depth in our accompanying Environmental Report. Environmental issues are considered in greater detail through the NATA process as Schemes are developed and, in many instances, they are also subjected to a full scheme level Environmental Impact Assessment.
We have also engaged regional stakeholders in the development of the Major Schemes programme. All but one of our non-approved Schemes support the Regeneration Zone and/or High Technology Corridor strategies which underpin the RES and RSS. This illustrates our coordinated approach and our commitment to schemes that support regional aspirations. Where relevant, the synergies of implementing more than one Major Scheme have also been partially identified, as have any quantifiable benefits.
