Commenting on Government’s announcement of a National Infrastructure Commission, to be chaired by Lord Adonis – Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Director General, Nick Baveystock, said:
“This is a bold and positive move by Government. Infrastructure must be planned for the long term and the pressing need for an independent body, as a mechanism to build political consensus, has been recognised. We look forward to working with the Commission - ICE has already convened a coalition of business, industry and academic leaders to produce an evidence based assessment of the UK’s future infrastructure needs and we hope this can feed into the work. This is about making the right strategic choices.”
