Our Strategy for Sustainable Access to Economic Growth and Opportunity
This Connecting People to Places of Employment, Education and Wellbeing - Our Strategy for Sustainable Access to Economic Growth and Opportunity package builds on the existing Local Sustainable Transport Fund programme, focussing on key travel to work corridors between Chester, Merseyside and Deeside (North East Wales) where there are significant existing and emerging employment opportunities.
