|Protecting & enhancing the future of the UK|
The Commissioners on the National Infrastructure Assessment report on their findings / recommendations.
Sir John Armitt CBE said: “Whether it’s electric or driverless cars, new energy sources, tackling the risk of climate change or preparing for the newest & fastest broadband speeds, the issues we’ve been considering profoundly affect people’s everyday lives.
“The whole purpose of the UK’s first-ever National Infrastructure Assessment is to think beyond the technologies of today and to ensure we can make the most of future innovations. It’s why it’s not just a one-off but something we will be repeating every five years to ensure we remain on the front foot.
“This is not some unaffordable wish-list of projects: it sets a clear direction for how to meet the country’s future infrastructure needs, and makes a realistic assessment of what can and should be delivered within the stated aim of Ministers for steady and continued investment over the coming years.
“I therefore look forward to the Government’s response to our report, and seeing how our recommendations can become reality.”
