The South East is home to 7.5 million people and 329,000 businesses. It includes international airports, several major ports and some of the busiest rail routes and roads in the country. There is no existing single body which plans strategic transport across the South East. Transport for the South East meets that need by bringing together representatives of 16 transport authorities and five local enterprise partnerships.
We will be able to integrate different modes of transport so that journeys by road, rail, air and sea work more smoothly together. We will harness and develop innovations in transport such as smart ticketing and other digital and technological advances, to benefit everyone who lives, works or visits here. We will also unlock the potential for continuing growth where lack of transport infrastructure has been a barrier to sustainable development, including for housing and more world-class businesses. Transport for the South East is already working closely with national Government on our transport needs and intends to become a statutory body by 2020.
