Transport East was established in 2018 as the emergent Sub-national Transport Body (STB) and covers the Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex, Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock geography. Transport East offers an opportunity to deliver the long-term, strategic vision for transport infrastructure for the area; bringing together key partners, to make a strong case for investment to ensure that our transport network is fit for the future and enables the delivery of three aims:

  • Global Gateways. Better connected ports and airports to help UK businesses thrive and boost the nation’s economy through greater access to international markets and facilitates Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).
  • Multi-Centred Connectivity. Enhanced links between our fastest growing places and business clusters; enabling the area to function as a coherent economy and improving productivity.
  • Energised Coastal Communities. A reinvented, sustainable coast for the 21st century which delivers on our ambition to become the UK’s foremost all-energy coast, as well as a competitive visitor offer.

The key messages from Transport East’s Regional Evidence Base will be presented at the Transport East Summit on 26 February 2020, and the proposed outline engagement framework for the Transport Strategy to be developed over the coming year.

The Summit brings together transport authorities, district planning authorities, Local Enterprise Partnerships and business, transport providers, representatives from infrastructure agencies and transport services to explore the challenge and opportunities, and set the priorities and ambitions which will ensure that our transport network is fit for the future.
