Floods bring road infrastructure developments ‘into sharp focus’, says Eversheds’ Lacey

Following the floods of February 2013, Dominic Lacey, road infrastructure expert at Eversheds, has commented on the importance of major road infrastructure developments in the UK.

Lacey said: ‘This latest round of flooding brings into sharp focus the need for sustained development and maintenance of the UK road network.

‘With long-term changing weather conditions and the government’s announcement on planned investments this week, it seems as though factors influencing this are lining up and we could be about to see a once-in-a-generation move that will lead to real strides forward in the development of UK roads.’
