Civil engineers call for greater resilience in UK infrastructure

The Institute of Civil Engineers has published its assessment of the resilience of the UK’s infrastructure, as one of its annual ‘State of the Nation’ series. The report concludes that some risks to infrastructure, for example, extreme events, climate change and interdependencies, are not sufficiently considered. The report call for an enabling policy context to help i providers deliver a robust future infrastructure.┬áThe report identifies energy, flood management and local transport as being at particular risk. The main report is accompanied by several area reports (English regions and Northern Ireland).
