Editor’s message and March-April 2023 magazine download

Government ambition on infrastructure is being questioned across the board, but award-winning apprentice Hannah Mehr deservedly takes centre stage in the latest edition of Infrastructure Intelligence magazine.

The March-April 2023 edition of Infrastructure Intelligence is available to download now.

Welcome to the latest edition of our digital magazine, with award-winning apprentice Hannah Mehr deservedly taking centre stage on our front cover.

Hannah is the ACE apprentice of the year, and is using her success to inspire others to think of joining our industry when deciding their own career paths. Read all about it in our exclusive interview on pages 16-17.

It’s been another busy period for our industry, and one where government ambition on infrastructure delivery is being questioned across the board.

The NIC, the National Audit Office and the Climate Change Committee have all published recent critical reports, and you can read all about it in the pages of this magazine.

The spring budget on 15 March also drew a fairly mixed industry response, and the HS2 delay has been described as a complete false economy that threatens the UK’s global reputation on future infrastructure delivery. 

In other news, this is my final edition as editor of Infrastructure Intelligence. I’ve worked with II for almost four years and it’s been a joy and a pleasure to be involved in this fantastic industry.

However, a spot of Long-Covid has left me needing a bit of time out and, once my batteries are fully recharged, I’ll be working with some previous PR clients and enjoying a much better work-life balance. 

In the meantime; thanks for reading, we hope you enjoy the magazine, and please feel free to visit us online at - where you can sign up for our free twice-weekly enewsletter, packed with a mix of news, features and industry opinion.
