The competition is being run by the National Infrastructure Commission to bring together designers & planners to come up with concepts for the new arc development being supported by Government. The details appear to favour an integrated transport solution of new highway and rail.
The government asks the Commission to:
a) Identify which emerging technologies have the most potential in terms of optimising the management, performance and maintenance of existing and future infrastructure assets to support economic growth;
b) Make recommendations to government on what actions it should consider to support the deployment of those technologies across infrastructure areas and sectors, including identifying where trial approaches may be appropriate.
