Heathrow and HS2 in firing line of many prime minister front runners


Once again politics is likely to get in the way of delivering much needed transport infrastructure, efficiently and economically. It is no surprise that costs escalate as governments change and each has to stamp its own mark on the industry. Politicians come and go on a regular basis leaving the professionals who have committed their working life to the industry, to pick up the pieces and take the blame for late delivery and spiraling costs. Do other similar countries to whom we are continually compared suffer the same frustrations. Certainly I am sure France does not despite there political comings and goings.
