ACE welcomes move but warns against mistaking haste for speed

Commenting on the announcement, Darrell Matthews, Director of Membership & Business Engagement at the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) said:

“We welcome the move which is recognition of our industry’s vital role as a catalyst for wider recovery. However, we need to be wary of mistaking haste for speed as we help society build back better post-COVID. It’s not just any project, but the right kinds of programmes and investment that are needed if we are to deliver a renewed transportation system which is sustainable in every sense of the word, helping society towards its Net Zero targets while increasing productivity and playing its part in levelling-up the country.”
