Easy to read, short insights into trends and issues facing the infrastructure industry.
Let’s face it: today’s infrastructure development is primarily shaped by costs.
Anyone visiting London in recent years can hardly have failed to notice the development of Crossrail.

Projects boosting capacity of this magnitude are often plagued by inefficiencies, delays and overspend. Yet, Crossrail has largely managed to avoid these excesses.
