Members and experts contribute to upcoming flagship infrastructure report

More than 100 experts and organisations have submitted evidence on the key issues facing the UK’s infrastructure networks, as part of the ICE’s next State of the Nation report to be published in the summer.

State of the Nation: Infrastructure is published every four to five years in line with the Westminster electoral cycle and assesses each of the UK’s key economic infrastructure sectors - energy, transport, flooding, water and waste.

As well as a “scorecard” style set of grades attributed to each sector and an assessment of infrastructure performance, the report aims to help the government and industry identify ways they can work together to deliver effective solutions for the future.

There are also cross-cutting themes such as capacity and skills, decarbonisation, financing, planning and asset management.

The report enables the ICE to make recommendations to Whitehall, industry and other stakeholders and, importantly, the UK’s political parties as they build their manifestos ahead of the General Election in May 2015.

Written submissions have been received from ICE members, ICE expert panels and associated societies.

Other individuals and bodies such as the Environment ­Agency, Network Rail, Thames ­Water and the Met Office have also ­submitted evidence.

Workshop events organised by ICE’s 12 regional offices have highlighted key issues throughout the UK and further evidence hearings have taken place with targeted stakeholder organisations such as Infrastructure UK, the Construction Industry ­Training Board and a range of government departments.

The national report, led by steering croup chair and ICE vice president Keith Clarke, will be launched at One Great George Street in June.

The ICE’s devolved and regional teams will publish separate briefing reports in alignment with the electoral cycles of devolved ­administrations, and focusing on local issues.
