The Transport Infrastructure Efficiency Strategy (TIES) presents examples of efficiency initiatives that offer scalable opportunities. Drawing on examples from across transport and other sectors, including energy, water, oil and gas and defence. The TIES considers the findings from previous reports that have looked at transport, infrastructure and construction, to identify how these could be applied to help boost productivity and drive efficiency. The Government’s wider agenda to harness the spending power of publicly funded infrastructure to boost productivity in the supply chain is also supported by the TIES. This strategy will also support the objectives of the Government’s Industrial Strategy to increase innovation, develop skills, grow business and drive productivity and earning power across the UK; ensuring that for publicly funded infrastructure these wider interests are taken into account at the earliest stages and highest levels of decision-making.
The seven gap challenges identified in TIES focus on different aspects of the investment life cycle for infrastructure delivery: 1. Judge strategic choice and trade-offs; 2. Improve the way we set up our projects; 3. Create a transport infrastructure performance benchmarking forum; 4. Establish a common approach; 5. Promote long-term, collaborative relationships; 6. Challenge standards; 7. Exploit digital technologies and standardise our assets.
