ICE responds to publication of National Infrastructure Assessment

Press Statement

The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) responds to the National Infrastructure Commission’s (NIC) publication of the National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA)

Nick Baveystock, ICE Director General, said:

“We welcome the recommendations made in the NIA, which closely echo those made by ICE in its National Needs Assessment.

“Resilient infrastructure is vital for creating a more sustainable future for Britain. With an aging, and growing, population it is essential that infrastructure meets the future needs of society – this requires a long-term strategic approach to allow for effective planning and delivery.

“In publishing this detailed and comprehensive plan, the NIC has recognised the important areas that need clear strategic direction, from cleaner energy sources to digital transformation to improved flood defences. It is now up to the industry, clients and departments to work together to make these recommendations a reality.”
