  • Support national economic competitiveness and growth, by delivering reliable and efficient transport networks

  • Reduce transportís emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, with the desired outcome of tackling climate change

  • Contribute to better safety, security and health and longer life expectancy by reducing the risk of death, injury or illness arising from transport and by promoting travel modes that are beneficial to health

  • Improve quality of life for transport users and non-transport users, and to promote a healthy natural environment

  • Promote greater equality of opportunity for all citizens, with the desired outcome of achieving a fairer society.
