The Transport for Wales team
The main purpose of our Board is to ensure Transport for Wales meets the requirements of its remit as set by the Welsh Government, and to ensure the delivery of our strategy.
The TfW Board is made up of the Chair, Chief Executive, four independent non-executives and two executive members. Its role is to:
- provide effective leadership for TfW; defining and developing strategic direction, and setting objectives;
- provide effective leadership for the operation of the organisation; holding the Chief Executive to account for ensuring that TfW’s activities are conducted efficiently and effectively;
- monitor performance to ensure that TfW fully meets its aims, objectives and performance targets; and
- promote high standards of public finance; upholding the principles of regularity, propriety and value for money.
The Board meets eleven times a year, and has additional Board Development Days as required. We publish minutes of our Board meetings; they are available here
