How can Britain obtain better value for money from its Transport Infrastructure?

In an age of austerity it is increasingly apparent that Britain needs to extract better value for money from its national transport infrastructure.

How can we affordably build and maintain networks that will serve our transport needs in the coming decades? What changes are needed to improve the cost-effectiveness of our infrastructure? And what lessons can we learn from the way other nations build their networks? In the light of a number of recent reviews of our national transport infrastructure, the ITC hosted an expert discussion evening welcoming more than 40 senior experts, where Dr Heiner Bente, Chairman of the advisory board for civity, offered a response from an European perspective. ITC is Britain’s leading think tank and research charity devoted to the fields of transport and land use.
