The Acceleration Unit performs valuable work at the Department for Transport. DfT oversight and leadership on Project Speed and the secretariat of the Northern Transport Acceleration Council have both been transferred to the Acceleration Unit. The Acceleration Unit also has oversight of the departmental contribution to cross-Whitehall activity in relation to acceleration, particularly work on reforming the planning system, utilities, and how DfT can use improved governance to efficiently deliver projects.
