Chapter 10 Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity

Portfolio Responsibilities

The Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity (TIC) portfolio is responsible for both physical and digital connectivity and infrastructure through working with the public, private and third sectors and with local communities.

The Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity portfolio is responsible for heat and energy policy and delivery; for transport policy and strategy; for City Region and Growth Deals and for implementation of the Islands (Scotland) Act 2018 through the National Islands Plan. It includes Transport Scotland, the Scottish Government's national agency with responsibility for delivery of transport policy and strategy, public transport services, transport infrastructure including the trunk road network, accessibility and active travel and transport's contribution to the development of a low carbon economy. This also entails the sponsorship of a number of public bodies.

The portfolio contributes to all the National Outcomes that form part of the National Performance Framework by undertaking these responsibilities which underpin the effective functioning of our economy and society.

The portfolio leads on strategic infrastructure planning - through the Infrastructure Investment Plan and regular reporting on major projects and programmes. Following consultation on the draft plan in autumn 2020, a final Infrastructure Investment Plan covering the years 2021-22 to 2025-26 will shortly be published. The Plan focuses on adopting and building on the recommendations of the Infrastructure Commission for Scotland; showing how we will choose the right future investments and setting out a five year programme of further improvements in our strategic approach.
