"A radical new approach to how Britain will deliver future infrastructure projects"

Press statement

Commenting on the publication of the National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline 2021 and the Transforming Infrastructure Performance: Roadmap to 2030, Chris Richards, ICE Director of Policy said:

"Beneath the dense wording and heavy jargon, what today's announcements amount to are a radical new approach to how Britain will deliver future infrastructure projects. The decade-long Pipeline gives the construction industry the certainty needed to invest in the talent and machinery to do projects right.

"But it is the Roadmap to 2030 that is really worthy of applause. Developed between industry and government, it puts answering 'what does the public get?' squarely at the centre of future decision-making. It recognises the knock-on effects of infrastructure interventions, reinforces the role of data in unlocking insights and uses the Sustainable Development Goals as a clear true north to guide decision-making on behalf of the public. Policy thinking for ‘levelling-up’ and the second National Infrastructure Assessment would benefit from embedding this approach to ensure we continue to develop a system that best serves the public"
