Conservative MP Philip Hammond has been made the new secretary of state for transport.
The Conservative MP was previously shadow chief secretary to the Treasury, a post that has been filled in the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition by Lib Dem MP David Laws.
Prior to the election Tory transport spokesperson Theresa Villiers said: "A Conservative government will take action on the causes of unnecessary driving hassle by making the people who dig up our roads accountable for the congestion caused.
“We would give people the chance to campaign for the removal of excessive traffic lights and support innovation from local councils to get traffic flowing smoothly. We will also crack down on rogue clampers by regulating the industry.
“We would consult on a fair fuel stabiliser to cut fuel duty when oil prices rise. This will ensure families and businesses are less exposed to volatile oil markets.
