Transport connectivity to ports: review of the current status and future infrastructure recommendations

Studies reviewing the current status of rail and road connections to English ports plus recommendations for future improvements.

These studies:
* assess the current ability of inland rail and road networks to move freight to and from ports
* demonstrate the value that ports add to the economy at a local and national level
* lay out a vision for future port connectivity
*set out a series of recommendations which are the first step to enhancing port connectivity across the UK
The ‘Port Connectivity: the current picture’ report includes the 9 regional case studies used to inform the recommendations.

DfT site provides downloads of documents on:

Transport infrastructure for our global future: a study of England's port connectivity
