Comments From PwC’s UK Head Of Transportation & Logistics, Coolin Desai
PwC’s UK head of transportation & logistics, Coolin Desai, commented:
“The Government has laid out an ambitious trajectory to get Britain back on the transport track. What industry will need to see now is a transparent and proactive action plan to support this – a plan that will be cohesive and integrate all transport in its approach.
“It is right that the Chancellor recognises the need to update Britain’s transport system. Action now is not only necessary, but vital. Securing infrastructure funding is one step in the right direction but let’s now see rapid progression in these projects to better connect our hubs around aviation, road and rail. We are indeed in a global race, competing with the likes of China and the Middle East, which are developing their transport and infrastructures at phenomenal rates. The Government will be challenged not just on delivering schemes such as HS2 and Crossrail but on delivering efficiencies and value for money for the tax-paying public.”
