In March 2018 Transport East was launched, as a new Sub-National Transport Body to deliver a collective vision for the future of transport in Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk, Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock.
As a partnership, we bring together the local transport and planning authorities, and business leaders with Network Rail and Highways England. We enable the region to speak with one voice on the transport investment needed to drive transformational growth and improve the quality of life for all that live and work in the region.
Why do we need Transport East?
As one of seven Sub-national Transport Bodies covering England, Transport East will develop a Transport Strategy and Delivery Plan for the region which ensures that transport fully supports its members shared ambitions for economic growth, quality of life and prosperity.
