Following the publication of the Scottish Government’s Infrastructure Investment Plan and Capital Spending Review, ICE Scotland has called for an urgent review of the country’s infrastructure to ensure it is fit for purpose.
The Scottish Government must undertake an urgent review of the country’s infrastructure, ICE Scotland has said.
It follows the publication of the government’s spending commitments over the next five years which outlines a £33bn investment in, among other things, transport and the environment.
Welcoming the plan, ICE Scotland director Hannah Smith said: “We are delighted to see the Scottish Government has listened to ICE members and repeatedly emphasised the need to ensure our infrastructure is as resilient as possible, particularly to withstand the effects of extreme weather.
“The doubling of investment in not just maintenance, but also asset enhancement, is a welcome commitment."
