Major transport infrastructure projects: appraisal and delivery


Billions of pounds of investment has been committed during 2020 to the UK’s transport infrastructure.

This inquiry will consider:

  • transport infrastructure strategy and priorities;
  • the appraisal and funding of transport infrastructure;
  • oversight, accountability and governance of transport infrastructure projects;
  • factors influencing the cost and capacity and skills required to deliver the infrastructure plans.          

The extent to which the coronavirus pandemic will affect the necessity and cost-effectiveness of major transport infrastructure projects will factor in the Committee’s work. The Government also has a legal commitment to meet net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and infrastructure is a major contributor to the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions.
