Infrastructure is vital to our nation. It's a complex system which provides us with the energy, transport, water and other essentials that are the basis of our civilised society and economic well-being.

The nation that neglects its infrastructure neglects its future. But the nation that respects its infrastructure respects its people, and provides for their sustainable future. Infrastructure needs long-term policy stability to encourage investment.

To attract further investment from the private sector, new forms of funding are required, like a National Infrastructure Investment Bank. But increased levels of investment must also be accompanied by good asset management and demand management.

That is why ICE commends the establishment of Infrastructure UK and its longer term strategic planning.
