About this site

TfSE is a productive and valued partnership for our region. We bring together local authorities, business groups, transport providers and others to determine the south east’s strategic transport needs.

We represent West Berkshire, Reading, Slough, Wokingham, Bracknell Forest, Windsor and Maidenhead, Kent, Medway, Hampshire, Southampton, Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex and Brighton and Hove.

Our region is nationally and internationally significant. It is served by the country’s two biggest airports. Our transport network includes many of the country’s busiest motorways, along with crucial railway links to London, the rest of Britain and mainland Europe. We are also home to some of the country’s biggest and busiest seaports, all of which makes the south east the nation’s key international gateway for people and goods.

Aside from the economic success and global status of the south east, we house world-leading universities and research institutes, diverse towns and cities and stunning coasts and countryside. It is a great place to live, work, study, visit and do business. The south east has a growing population of over 8.3m residents and is the base for around 350k businesses.

By 2050, the south east will be the world’s leading region for sustainable economic growth. Our mission is to provide a clean, safe, seamless transport system to better connect our lives and our businesses, while protecting the environment. This will mean more jobs, more opportunities to trade in the global marketplace and a better quality of life for everyone.
