High performing transport professionals need to adopt a mindset of squeezing more out of their projects, doing more for less.
Using this approach means your project is more likely to be supported (funded), at a time when transport agencies are facing significantly reduced budgets.
In 2010 the UK Highways Agency funding levels were reduced from £2.6B down to a projected £2B in 2014-15, a reduction of 23% over five years, in the face of increased demand and cost increases. Budget cuts are being experienced in other areas in Europe, in North America and Australia.
Efficiency savings are not enough to meet these budget cuts and uniform cuts across all programs result in reduced outcomes – achieving less with less!
