Nusrat Ghani, MP for Wealden, was delighted to attend the launch of the Transport for the South East (TfSE) public consultation on their draft strategic investment plan.
Transport for South East (TfSE) is a partnership of local authorities, business groups, transport operators and user groups that works across public and private sectors to make a case for the South East region.
This plan is the culmination of five years of technical work, stakeholder engagement and institutional development. It is the blueprint for future investment in strategic transport infrastructure for the next thirty years and sets out the steps to decarbonise the transport system across the region, level-up left-behind communities and facilitate sustainable economic growth in the South East.
Nusrat works closely with Councillor Keith Glazier, Chair of TfSE and leader of East Sussex County Council, to ensure that Wealden remains central to the ambition and vision for better infrastructure across the South East.

Nusrat Ghani said: “The development of a sustainable and green transport strategy in the South East is of vital importance and I am pleased to be supporting this strategy. Transport is the key to productivity and as the region continues to grow, we should recognise that it should be given the appropriate infrastructure funding for its roads, its railways, its aviation infrastructure, and its ports. I will continue to work Cllr Keith Glazier, with East Sussex County Council and TfSE so we can get the support we need for East Sussex and for Wealden in particular. The South East is a principal international gateway and better transport connections throughout the region will benefit the UK as a whole.”
