The South East is a powerful driver of the UK economy and the nation’s major international gateway for people and businesses. Transport for the South East’s ambition is not just to improve but to transform the quality of transport for the South East’s residents, businesses and visitors.
The South East is already a powerful motor for national prosperity, adding £200 billion a year to the UK economy – more than Scotland and Wales combined. Our transport network is nationally and internationally significant: it takes in the country’s two biggest airports, many of its busiest motorways, a string of major ports and crucial railway links to London, the rest of Britain and to mainland Europe. Pressure on this network means it needs innovation, insight and investment for the South East to continue to flourish.
