Private investment in roads a vital vision for the futureMarch 19, 2012
Commenting on the Prime Minister’s proposals for new private financing of road infrastructure,
Baroness Jo Valentine, Chief Executive of business group London First, said:
“This call for new, private investment in our strategic road network is a welcome move and echoes recommendations from our recent report on London’s critical transport links to the rest of the UK. Our road infrastructure is vital for business – delivering more capacity with new private financing models will not only cut the congestion that hits the economy but also build a modern vision for transport infrastructure that matches our European rivals.”
