About Us

It is an exciting time at Midlands Connect. We are the pan-Midlands partnership of local and combined authorities, local enterprise partnerships and business representatives working with the Department for Transport and its key delivery bodies. The partnership forms the transport component of the Midlands Engine, which is delivering economic growth, and improving productivity and prosperity across the region.

Together, the Midlands Connect Partnership and the Department for Transport have developed a transport strategy that identifies the major infrastructure projects needed to improve the connectivity of our region’s key locations so we can help drive economic growth and power the Midlands Engine. We are also on a journey to become one of the first Sub-national transport bodies, giving the Midlands a much greater say over transport strategy and investment.
