The transport infrastructure efficiency strategy (TIES) outlines 7 challenges which will be addressed to improve transport infrastructure efficiency and provide better outcomes for transport users. It has been produced by:

  • Crossrail
  • Highways England
  • HS2 Ltd
  • Network Rail
  • Transport for London
  • Department for Transport

The 7 challenges complement existing efficiency plans within each transport body. They also support wider government initiatives, such as the industrial strategy, the construction sector deal, and the Infrastructure Project’s Authority’s transforming infrastructure programme.

This strategy was reviewed in the ‘Transport infrastructure efficiency strategy: one year on’, published in March 2019.
