Our transport infrastructure practice advises on infrastructure projects relating to the four main forms of transport for both goods and people – road, rail, airports and ports. Whether in developed or emerging markets, we assist clients in building the infrastructure that enables an efficient supply chain.
Within emerging markets, transport infrastructure is becoming more and more important as towns and cities continue to develop at an increasingly fast pace and with a need to connect to the developed world. New transport infrastructure projects are being announced across the sector on a regular basis, and there is an increasing use of different project structures internationally, such as PPP or PFI, which have been used successfully in the UK in the past. In contrast however, investment in brand new infrastructure projects has slowed down in many developed countries due to the current economic crisis.
