Elgin Transport Strategy

The Elgin Transport Strategy aims to keep Elgin moving for the future, and to meet our growth needs to 2030.

Our vision through the Transport Strategy is to make sure that Elgin is a desirable, vibrant and healthy place to live, work and visit for all. Our transport network needs to enable Elgin to grow and develop as planned for in our Local Development Plan 2015. This includes more housing, school, leisure facilities and employment sites

What does the strategy cover?

 The Elgin Transport Strategy:

• sets out proposals for improvements to the transport network across the city over the next 13 years including roads, junctions, crossings and cycle routes

• develops ways to help people become more active, walking and cycling more often and promotes more use of public transport

• helps to shape the future development of Elgin by contributing to the next review of the Moray Local Development Plan
