Podcast Special: can Brits ever deliver infrastructure on time and on budget?

Oct 30, 2018, 05:19 PM

Britain is a world leader in many things - but not many people would say that infrastructure is one of them. When abroad, Brits marvel at the state of airports and railways, even swimming pools. When we seek to catch up - with HS2 or a new runway for London - the result is years of wrangling. Is there a British curse? The Spectator's Fraser Nelson talked to transport journalist Christian Wolmar, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission Sir John Armitt, and UK Head of Aecom David Barwell.
