Details

There are a number of major infrastructure projects that need to be delivered in the UK given the underinvestment over the last decade. It has already been established that some of these will not be delivered through a PPP model as originally envisaged (e.g. A303, Lower Thames Crossing). For others (Silvertown, A9, various rail sector projects as detailed above, MaPR, A465) the dream remains alive. Is there a deliverable private finance model for these major projects or is Silvertown Tunnel the last of a dying breed?

• What does the contractor market look like for these projects?
• Are fixed price contracts for mega projects deliverable anymore?
• Are debt/equity interested in the risk profile?
• Are government support packages the panacea?
• What international models are there to borrow from?
