Joint Transport Committee
The North East Joint Transport Committee was established by The Newcastle Upon Tyne, North Tyneside and Northumberland Combined Authority (Establishment and Functions) Order 2018 (the Order).
It brings together the two Combined Authorities of the region, the North East Combined Authority and the North of Tyne Combined Authority, to exercise certain functions in accordance with the Order.
Transport is of strategic importance to the North East, and the collaborative working of both Combined Authorities allows effective decision-making across the region, which ensures that the local needs and priorities are delivered.
