The trouble with the revolving door at the Department for Transport
SO Justine Greening is no longer secretary of state for transport. She had only been in the job since last October.
She replaced Philip Hammond who had been in the role since the coalition was formed in May 2010.
That's not long for a minister to put their feet under the desk to get to grips with a complex brief.
And it has been an issue in the Department for Transport (DfT) for years, according to AA president Edmund King.
And if you take a look through the history books, there have been SIX transport secretaries in the past five years - including when Labour was in power.
"The revolving door at the DfT has been one of the problems over the last 15 years. I think we have more Secretaries of State for Transport than any other department," said Mr King.
"The problem with that is that is everyone knows transport is about long-term planning. You cannot change things overnight."
He added: "The problem with so many changes is that each person comes in with their own ideas."
Mr King expressed disappointment at Ms Greening being moved, saying she had got to grips with a complex brief.
The shifting of transport secretaries was also "frustrating," he said, because campaigners, MPs and local authorities had in effect to "start again" in terms of highlighting issues with the latest appointment.
The new appointee might not know about the long-running calls to fully dual the A1 through Northumberland for example, said Mr King.
