Future of Infrastructure

Feb, 2018

Investment and sustainability are two main factors impacting the development of infrastructure both in the UK and abroad. The Future of Infrastructure special report, published in The Times, explores the role of private investment in future projects, how cash-strapped cities are the battlegrounds for clean energy and the need for investors to make the right decisions on which technologies to back. Also featured is an infographic detailing the biggest mega-project of all time, China’s One Belt, One Road initiative, and five top lessons to be learnt from the collapse of construction giant Carillion


Pegged as the most ambitious infrastructure megaproject of all time, China’s One Belt, One Road initiative (OBOR) will stretch from the very edge of East Asia to East Africa and Central Europe, connecting nearly two thirds of the world’s population. Through continuous networks of highways, railways, ocean routes and ports, the scheme will open up cross-border connectivity and encourage a further integration of international markets.
