The infrastructure pillar of the campaign aims to ensure the delivery of the right infrastructure on time and within budget.

Investment in public infrastructure is fundamental to creating the economic conditions necessary for long-term national prosperity. In recent years, public investment in Ireland has dropped to under 2% per annum of economic output, running down the country’s stock of critical infrastructure. The NDP has earmarked a €116 billion investment on priority projects over the period to 2027 and will see annual capital spending exceed 4% of economic output.

If delivered, the NDP will go a long way to remedying the chronic and pronounced infrastructural deficits that need to be addressed. However, Ibec believes that more needs to be done and that the NDP does not address all the key infrastructural deficits in transport and public infrastructure.
