Incoming Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) President, Sir John Armitt, said:
“I am very pleased to be invited to join the Commission. The NIC is something I have advocated and believe in - it is a means of ensuring we have longer term thinking when it comes to the development of UK infrastructure. Importantly, it also opens up the infrastructure debate, so we can ensure decisions are based on broad, unbiased evidence on the UK’s needs for the coming decades. I am keen to get started, and look forward to working with Andrew and the other Commissioners, who bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table.”
Sir John - "Consensus can power infrastructure revolution"
