The Department for Transport is at the heart of the Government’s growth agenda. We sponsor key infrastructure programmes to support economic growth and meet future transport needs, as well as supporting vital transport services for businesses and consumers. The Department works domestically and internationally on key policy areas ranging from major projects such as High Speed Rail and Cross-Rail to understanding and providing for future transport demand across different travel choices. The Department is working to ensure our transport systems are efficient and effective, keeping them safe and secure, and reducing greenhouse gases and other environmental impacts.
