MP for Gillingham and Rainham Paul Clark has been appointed as parliamentary under secretary of state for transport and has been given responsibility for city and regional networks, local authority transport, buses, cycling and walking.
Jim Fitzpatrick, parliamentary undersecretary of state, remains at the DfT in charge of road safety and transport issues in London.
