ICE wants transport organisations, experts and ICE members to submit evidence to its upcoming State of the Nation report.
The report will look at the state of the UK’s transport infrastructure and seek to inform government policy and decisions in the coming years.
The ICE’s flagship State of the Nation reports have covered a range of infrastructure issues from water security to waste and resource management, and are compiled each year by a panel of recognised experts drawn from the various fields of expertise across ICE’s membership.
The 2008 State of the Nation report was the last to focus on transport, but much has changed since then. Now,public debate is dominated by the future of our airports, high speed rail, decarbonisation and the search for new ways to fund construction.
ICE is calling for views on:
- Short, medium and long term objectives for transport policy and challenges to overcome
- Transport strategy, governance and delivery
- Transport funding and cost
- Management of the British transport system
- Lessons from recent experience around the UK and from overseas
Full questions and further information are available at: www.ice.org.uk/SoNTransport or by emailing SoNTransport@ ice.org.uk. Evidence submitted should not exceed 2,000 words. Evidence gathering will run until 13 February and will be followed up with interviews, workshops and further research, with the aim to publish the final State of the Nation: Transport report in late June 2013.
