The Department for Infrastructure is seeking views on the vision and objectives for the Eastern Transport Plan (ETP) 2035

Consultation description

DfI are currently preparing a new transport plan which will set the framework for making transport policy and investment decisions up until 2035. The Eastern Transport Plan (ETP) 2035, until recently referred to as the Belfast Metropolitan Transport Plan (BMTP), covers five council areas and will also support the preparation of the Local Policy Plans for these councils:

  • Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council
  • Ards and North Down Borough Council
  • Belfast City Council
  • Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council
  • Mid and East Antrim Borough Council

ETP 2035 aims to ensure that the transport network meets the needs of the residents and businesses in the ETP area as well as people working and visiting the  area, both now and into the future. The ETP area and each of the council boundaries are shown in the map below.
