Transport strategy

Our Local Transport Strategy - LTS (PDF, 15.4mb) sets out our vision, objectives and proposals for local transportation in North Ayrshire.

We use it to influence the actions of partner organisations who deliver aspects of transport within North Ayrshire's boundaries and surrounding regions.

We work with partner organisations to deliver the LTS. They play a vital role in ensuring that the transport network is as efficient, inclusive, safe, integrated and sustainable as possible.

Our vision

North Ayrshire Roads & Transport's vision is to:

  1. Integrate all forms of transport, land use planning, and other strategic policies within the council relating to economic regeneration, development, and the environment.
  2. Maintain and enhance the choice of transport modes to ensure that all sections of the community have safe, secure and equal opportunity to access all local facilities, and good transport links to other parts of the country.
  3. Manage and contain any future growth in traffic and promote alternatives, to ensure that traffic congestion problems and air pollution do not develop.

Our objectives

Our objectives are to:

  1. Promote social inclusion by connecting communities to facilities and services, and increasing the accessibility of the transport network.
  2. Promote economic growth by maximising the effectiveness and efficiency of transport services, infrastructure and networks.
  3. Minimise the environmental footprint of transport services, infrastructure and networks.
  4. Improve the integration of the transport system between different services and modes, and with other relevant local, regional, and national policies.
  5. Reduce accidents and enhance the personal safety of all users of the transport network, by improving the safety and security of journeys.
