02. Our Five
     Year Transport
     Delivery Plan

     Our Five Year Transport Delivery Plan (2021–2026)
     details what Greater Manchester wants to achieve
     in the next five years as the first steps towards
     delivering our vision for transport.

     It sets out the practical actions planned to deliver
     the Greater Manchester Transport Strategy
     2040 and achieve the ambitions of the Greater
     Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and
     the Mayor, providing a coordinated approach to
     transport investment.

     It is also intended to inform the development of
     the Greater Manchester Infrastructure Programme
     (GMIP) and outline Greater Manchester’s future
     transport investment pipeline, highlighting our
     readiness to draw on funding announced in the
     2020 Spending Review.

     Our Five Year Transport Delivery Plan supports the
     implementation of Our Network, a ten-year plan
     to create a world-class, modern, integrated and
     reliable transport system for Greater Manchester.
     It brings together different modes of public
     transport – bus, tram, rail, tram-train and cycling
     and walking – in an integrated, easy-to-use system
     with seamless connections, and simplified
     ticketing and fares.

     Our Five Year Transport Delivery Plan is supported
     by Local Implementation Plans (LIPs) for 2021 to
     2026 for each of the 10 GM Local Authorities.

05. In the next
five years…

Over the next five years we need to focus on reducing carbon
emissions, improving air quality, supporting recovery from the Covid-19
pandemic, tackling social exclusion and helping to deliver expected
housing and employment growth.

Our focus will therefore be on investing in walking, cycling and public
transport networks; better integrating our existing transport system;
and developing major sustainable transport schemes for delivery in
the medium and long term.

This will deliver the Our Network plan to create a world-class, modern,
integrate and reliable transport system. In summary, our main
programme includes:

                   Our Bus
                   — Bus priority measures
                   — Bus Rapid Transit

06. Developing
future transport
interventions

We hope to be well underway with our programme
of interventions in the next five years, but our vision
reaches far beyond this. COVID-19 has forced us to
re-evaluate how we work and travel, we will continue
to adapt to these challenges as we recover. If we are
to achieve our vision by 2040, we must think long-
term and act now. The plan also identifies longer-
term ambitions and priorities, including:

—    Future Metrolink expansion;
—    Develop Tram-Train services to provide
     extra capacity on exiting rail corridors;
—    Further expansion of Bus Rapid Transit,
     interchange development and quality
     bus connections between our town and
     city centres;
—    Continuing to invest in active transport
     infrastructure and promoting walking and
     cycling to improve our health and environment;
—    Sustainable freight projects; and
—    Preparation for the arrival of HS2 and NPR.

These transport improvements are being delivered
by a range of delivery bodies including Transport for
Greater Manchester, local authorities, Network Rail
and Highways England.
