Arup examines Libya's infrastructure needs

Arup has returned to Libya this week as it embarked on a trade mission with UK trade minister Lord Green on Monday, to discuss the country’s most pressing infrastructure needs.

A spokesman for Arup said that the most important first steps would be to provide housing, schools and healthcare in the war ravaged country.

“Libyans also need the infrastructure required to support to a thriving modern economy as well,” he said. “That means everything from water and drainage to electricity and communications networks.”

On Monday, UK representative for the Libyan National Transitional Council Guma El Gamaty told a London conference that all engineering contracts made in the Gaddafi era would be honoured.
