In our submission, we call on Government to focus on two overarching objectives in order to help grow the UK economy:
- Maximise infrastructure's contribution to improved productivity and higher economic growth.
- Build resilience into the UK's infrastructure networks so that they are fit to face future challenges.
To achieve these objectives, Government should collaborate with industry to:
- Create a long-term infrastructure decision-making framework.
- Secure a world class engineering workforce that can drive innovation and productivity.
- Develop Infrastructure Network Performance Metrics.
- Accelerate the devolution of power and resources for developing high performing infrastructure.
The submission also outlines recommendations for sector spending on high speed rail, flood risk management and roads.
