The author comments on the proposed Great Britain's transport planning machinery which is gaining support, particularly from City Regions, Greater Manchester and Tees Valley. He says that Westminster mainly determines national transport policies, while on other issues like shipping, aviation and safety, the international and European Union (EU) agreements prevail. He mentions that rail policy is focused on Northern Ireland, partly in Scotland and to some extent in Wales.
