Smart Network, Smarter Choices

The West Midlands has been awarded over £33 million from the Government’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF) to help tackle congestion, reduce carbon emissions and kick start the regional economy.

Centro, working in close partnership with the seven West Midlands councils, will now use the money to fund our Smart Network, Smarter Choices project. This will involve implementing a wide range of sustainable travel schemes along ten key corridors in the West Midlands – helping people to make smarter and greener travel choices to help cut congestion and improve traffic flows. Not only will this help support our regional economy but it will bring substantial benefits for the environment and people’s health. To help bring about this change, we need your help.

In order to deliver the LSTF programme to time and budget, additional capacity is required within Centro’s Sustainable Travel Team, as detailed below.
