Transport for the South East has set out the powers it will seek in its application to ministers to become a statutory sub-national transport body.
Statutory status would automatically grant TfSE powers to prepare a transport strategy for the area, and provide advice to the secretary of state for transport on trunk road and rail investments in the region.
In addition, TfSE is to request the following extra powers:
TfSE is not seeking powers over road maintenance or the power to give directions to a constituent authority about the exercise of it local transport functions.
Not is it seeking powers to be a co-signatory on rail franchises for the time being. TfSE is waiting to see the outcome of the Government’s rail review, which has been delayed by Covid-19.
TfSE intends to submit its application for statutory status to the DfT later this summer.
