The Department for Transport (DfT) is the government department responsible for the English transport network and a limited number of transport matters in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland that have not been devolved. The department is run by the Secretary of State for Transport, currently (since 24 July 2019) Grant Shapps.
Meanwhile, two major civil engineering groups are playing an active part in the restoration of the Redsand Towers. They are Mowlem Marine (now Carillion) and Taylor Woodrow. Project Redsand are extremely grateful to both companies for their foresight and dedication to the conservation of our heritage. Both Mowlem and Taylor Woodrow have provided costly services to Project Redsand without charge. Both companies have supported the Project from the outset and without their support, this project would be difficult to realise.
A number of companies are now looking at the progress of Project Redsand with the view to assisting in the future.
