Transport for the South East is a unique partnership for our region, bringing together local authorities, local enterprise partnerships and transport providers to speak with one voice on the South East’s strategic transport priorities.
Our region – covering Berkshire, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Surrey, West Sussex, East Sussex and Kent – is the most productive region in the country outside of London. It is home to 7.5 million residents and more than 350,000 businesses and is our nation’s key international gateway for people and goods. It boasts world-leading universities and research institutes, diverse towns and cities and stunning coasts and countryside. It is a great place to live, work, study, visit and do business.
Our focus is on developing a strategic investment plan for the South East that will support the South East’s continued recovery from the effects of Covid-19, and facilitate growth whilst working to achieve our shared vision of a better, more prosperous, net-zero carbon South East with a sustainable transport network at its heart.
By operating strategically across the South East on transport issues – a role that no other organisation has undertaken until now – we’re able to directly influence how, where and when money is invested in our region’s transport networks. We don’t replicate the work of local transport authorities; we work with them to ensure that the plans we put forward reflect the needs and priorities of the communities they represent.
Our strategic investment plan will be available for public consultation in June 2022.
