i3P established as a force for change across UK infrastructure
Posted on 07/12/2017
change in driving collaboration.
Launched earlier today, the Transport Infrastructure Efficiency Strategy [TIES] describes seven challenges that the Department for Transport and its delivery bodies will address to improve UK transport infrastructure efficiency. The Strategy was produced by Crossrail, Highways England, HS2 Ltd, Network Rail, Transport for London and Department for Transport.
As part of the strategy, these contributors reference i3P in the context of wider government initiatives, such as the industrial strategy, the construction sector deal, and the Infrastructure Project Authority’s transforming infrastructure programme.
Also today, the UK Government has published its policy paper entitled Transforming Infrastructure Performance [TIP]. This paper outlines the government’s plan to improve the delivery and performance of infrastructure and boost construction sector productivity.
As part of TIP, the Infrastructure and Projects Authority highlighted – as an immediate priority – membership of and deeper engagement with i3P in order to “catalyse and disseminate innovation & ; best practice”. i3P is now firmly established as a platform for transformational change in the infrastructure and construction sector. The platform is well placed, through development of the technology roadmaps, the discovery project programme and strategic relationships, to make a fundamental difference to the way in
which innovation is channelled and supported in UK infrastructure.
