Local transport plan

The government requires us to publish plans for maintaining and improving all aspects of local transport over a five year period.

The local transport plan is a set of documents that the government requires all local transport authorities to produce. The documents set out our plans and strategies for maintaining and improving all aspects of the local transport system over a set period of time.

As the highway authority, we are responsible for all adopted roads and footways within North Yorkshire and for the management, maintenance and improvement of the highway network. The highway network consists of approximately 9,200km of road, 4,000km of footway, 47,000 streetlights and 2,000 bridges.

As well as improvement schemes, the plan also delivers maintenance schemes, highway and footway repair and improvement and replacement of bridges and structures.

There have been a number of local transport plans since 2001, the latest coming into effect from April 2016.

Local transport plan four (LTP4) - from April 2016 onwards

The following local transport plan document sets out the council's priorities, plans and strategies for managing, maintaining and improving all aspects of the local transport system for the next 30 years.

The local transport plan was approved by the county council in February 2016.
