Andy Walker shares the highlights from the latest magazine

The latest print edition of Infrastructure Intelligence is the 30th edition of the magazine - a milestone worth celebrating says editor Andy Walker in his latest editor's comment.

Welcome to the 30th issue of Infrastructure Intelligence. We’ve now been going for four years and we’re delighted to be celebrating that fact on page 19 by reflecting on a significant milestone for our publication and website.

Elsewhere, the magazine is packed full of the usual informative mix of news, features and intelligence about infrastructure that you’ve come to expect. Major projects feature strongly this issue. We have features on the impressive new London Bridge station (p8-10), the Thames Tideway project that will reconnect Londoners with the River Thames (p16-18) and we report on the potential for a new bridge from Scotland to Northern Ireland (p20-21).

Speaking of potential, we preview the Skills Summit 2018 futureproofing the industry event that takes place in London in June (p6-7) and we also take a look at the fascinating proposals for HS4Air, which if realised promise to create “an M25 for high-speed trains” (p24-25).

Our latest Think Tank piece sees Mott MacDonald’s Richard Shennan wax lyrical about digital transformation in the construction and infrastructure sector (p11), a theme echoed by AECOM’s Richard Robinson in an opinion column on page 31. We also take a look at the contribution that regional UK markets are making to construction output (p5) and what Birmingham needs to do to ensure its Commonwealth Games legacy (p30).

News, views, comment, information, great pictures, infrastructure and intelligence – and still going strong after 30 issues!
