The UK Government has made clear that it places infrastructure at the centre of its vision for the nation – investing in infrastructure to level up prosperity and wellbeing across the country.
This paper advocates a vision for infrastructure that is: People-focused – recognising the fundamental role of infrastructure in the social, economic and environmental outcomes that determine the quality of people’s lives. Systems-based – recognising infrastructure as a complex, interconnected system of systems that must deliver continuous service to society.It articulates how the industry should re-envision itself to unlock greater value for people, from the systems.
