Temporal Issues in Strategic Infrastructure Planning
This paper considers the temporal dimensions of strategic infrastructure planning. Planning and investment decisions taken by the current generation leave a legacy (good or bad) for future generations. These temporal dimensions are reflected in two broad
questions: What are governments and private infrastructure owners planning to do over the medium to long-term, and why? And how much should be spent in the short-term, on what and, again, why?
