For centuries the UK has been a standard-bearer for quality infrastructure delivery. From bridges and canals, fuelling the country’s industrial revolution, to airports, railways, roads, under-sea tunnels and tube networks; the UK has set the bar high when it comes to delivering major infrastructure, enabling its population to live freely and develop economic prosperity. The country, however, faces unprecedented challenges in the form of fast growing, ageing population, underwhelming productivity figures, tough carbon emission targets, over-crowding transport networks and, of course, the impending exit from the European Union. Nowhere is this exemplified to a greater degree than in London, where all these challenges present themselves simultaneously, requiring strong government policy to overcome. Our expert panel, involved with some of the largest infrastructure projects the country has ever seen, will give their views on whether investment in infrastructure can still be relied upon as a mechanism for delivering economic growth. Our panel will also share their experiences of delivering major projects in London and the South-East.
