Thames Valley forum have released the report “Shaping the future transport network for the Thames Valley” in March 2021 setting out a vision for a green future transport network which supports the economy and all members of our society. It considers the future network from a national strategic perspective, regional viewpoint between our towns and travel within our towns.
The Transport report was formally launched at an event with a keynote talk from the Department for Transport and a panel session debating the key issues impacting the region’s future transport network.
Thank you to Stantec for their support in producing the report.

A key outcome of the report is the launch of ‘Thames Valley Transport’.
Thames Valley Transport will focus its initial work on bringing together groups of like-minded partners across private and public sector from around the Thames Valley to discuss best practice and practical solutions in a number of areas such as:
- Electric Vehicle charging
- Encouraging active travel (walking and cycling)
- Better integrating between modes of transport
- Innovative solutions such as Drones; Micromobility; Tunnels for hyperloop or Magway systems; Autonomous Vehicles; Uses of Apps and data
The group’s terms of reference, make up and detailed activity will be scoped out in the coming weeks.
