  • Investments in Africa's transport infrastructure begin to pay off

    African countries were on a drive to boost infrastructure and road networks on the continent in 2016. Ethiopia made huge strides this year with the inauguration of a new railway line, linking the capital, Addis Ababa with Djibouti in October. The 750 kilometer line was built at a cost of 4 billion US dollars with help from China. The country wants to have 5,000 kilometers of new rail lines by 2020 to boost the economy by improving transport.

  • Smart Energy + Transportation Infrastructure

    Roads help people access education, healthcare and jobs. Electricity generation is vital to fueling our societies. Yet both often impact natural ecosystems and the services they provide. In this video, we take a look at how these two can coexist and how economic analysis plays a big part in identifying the factors needed to make smart decisions.

  • Transport Infrastructure in Auckland, New Zealand

    Auckland has suffered historic under-investment in transport infrastructure, leading to a transport system that is overburdened and inefficient. With population set to rise from 1.5m to 2.16million by 2043, the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA, equivalent to TII) and Auckland Transport have started implementing a number of ambitious and challenging infrastructure projects. This presentation provides an interesting overview of the key engineering projects being implemented in Auckland, many of which are the largest projects undertaken in New Zealand history.
