Infrastructure Update from Herbert Smith Freehills
January 23, 2018
The Herbert Smith Freehills team has recently shared a range of thought leadership articles in the Infrastructure space. The second edition of the team’s global magazine, Inside Construction and Infra was released earlier this month, with articles focussing on China’s belt and road initiative, high speed rail projects, infrastructure trends in Latin America and NEC 4 Contracts.
The London team hosted a series of panel discussions with guest speakers with a range of expertise to discuss issues relating to Connected and Autonomous Vehicles. The report Connected and autonomous vehicles: Navigating the future relays some of the key questions, challenges and potential solutions that were discussed during these sessions and that are expected to arise as this technology is developed and commercialised.
The Australian team prepared this report: Top ten trends in Australian Infrastructure. The report provides a summary of the key macro-level trends affecting infrastructure investment in Australia, including asset recycling, unsolicited proposals, political and regulatory uncertainty and demographics. You can access additional detail on each trend by clicking on the relevant sub-heading in the main article.
The Victorian team has recently advised Melbourne Metro Rail Authority on the largest public transport project in Victoria’s history, Transurban on the A$6.7 billion city shaping West Gate Tunnel Project and the team are advising clients on Victorian Renewable Energy Target Auction Scheme, which is now taking bids.
