Public works need public sector skills – CPD Fellow interviewed by Jill Emberson

Tim Roxburgh dispels the myths surrounding the purported failures of the Government’s ‘Building the Education Revolution’, designed to stimulate the economy while delivering much-needed infrastructure to our schools.

Responding to claims that such public works programs are poorly managed by governments, Tim looks at the concrete outcome,  crunches the numbers, and asks what lessons can be gleaned for future infrastructure projects.

“Infrastructure… enables our economy to grow and prosper and that’s why it’s important we make sure when we spend money on these things, that we do it properly.”
