We have been clear on our ambitions on decarbonising transport and achieving net-zero emissions. The Acceleration Unit, which is directly accountable to the Transport Secretary, will help support these objectives through the Transport Decarbonisation Plan, by helping us deliver projects more quickly. Furthermore, the incoming head of the unit has a background championing environmental causes and a proven track record supporting public transport, including restoring the Beeching lines.
