ICE president Jean Venables on combatting climate change

ICE president Jean Venables believes engineers need to get at the heart of infrastructure policy making, and particularly those policies that are going to make a real impact on climate change, and especially meeting carbon dioxide targets.

Talking to NCE at Civils 2008 on plans for a third runway Heathrow, she said: "We have got to urgently change the way we look at transport.

"We have got to look at transport policy as a whole and that means integrating airports with rail and roads. "I firmly believe the High Speed rail option is the most attractive one."
