Praise the Danish Government for announcing new master plan for the infrastructure

ITD has long demanded a future-proof master plan for infrastructure investments in Denmark. Now it looks like the wish is coming true. On 2 October 2018 the Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen revealed that the Danish Government is ready to present a new infrastructure plan within the measurable future. ITD praises the announcement and is looking forward to the coming negotiation process.

ITD has long demanded a future-proof master plan for infrastructure investments in Denmark. Now it looks like the wish is coming true. On 2 October 2018 the Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen revealed that the Danish Government is ready to present a new infrastructure plan within the measurable future. ITD praises the announcement and is looking forward to the coming negotiation process.

 

 

This year it has been ten years since the Infrastructure Commission presented their whole strategy plan for management of the long-termed challenges for the transport infrastructure in Denmark. In 2009 a wide majority of the Folketing’s parties agreed on the Danish transport politics with concrete railway and road projects for up to 100 billion DKK. The time has now come to compose a new, ambitious and not least long-termed plan taking the massive infrastructural challenges Denmark confronts now and the coming many years in to consideration.

 

- At ITD we would like to sign for the prime minister announcement that there is a long-termed infrastructure plan coming up. We have long demanded it, and we hope that it will be just as ambitious as the previous. I is important for us that the new plan is both visionary and long-termed and at the same time solves Denmark’s important congestion challenges, says Carina Christensen, CEO at ITD.

 

In the same connection, the Danish Minister for Finance Kristian Jensen said at an open consultation in the Danish Transport Committee last week that the government prefers giving priority to roads and bridges rather than railways. The minister for finance also stated that forward-looking the government is open for considering partly payment by users.

 

- It is gratifying, that the Minister for Finance announces clearly that the government will in its coming infrastructure initiative give priority to roads and bridges. We also notice that the government – unlike earlier – is open for partly user-financing. There will be very interesting discussions on future, Danish infrastructure, and we are looking forward to contributing to the work, says Carine Christensen.
