This chapter examines the relationship between changing spaces of governance and transport policy across Great Britain after devolution. It evaluates the significance of the notion of geographical scale in the context of British transport policy, and discusses policy divergence and convergence. The chapter outlines the development of transport policy at the national scale, focusing particularly on the devolved jurisdictions of Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, and assesses developments at the subnational scale, highlighting the emergence of a stronger regional dimension in England, Scotland, and Wales.

Keywords:   transport policy, Great Britain, governance, devolution, geographical scale, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, England
