Flexible cities. The future of Australian infrastructure is a report written by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and sponsored by Salini Impregilo.

Drawing on global trends and international best practice, the report considers how Australia can develop the capabilities to both plan and build more flexible and adaptive infrastructure that can serve the successful expansion of its cities.

Cities are struggling to keep up with the changes we see around us—from new technologies that are changing how we live and work, to accommodating unprecedented population growth or planning for the impacts of climate change. These pressures demand new thinking in infrastructure. In much of the world we have historically planned, designed and built infrastructure over decades, often with hundred-year lifespans in mind. Many infrastructure projects take years to get off the ground, such that by the time they arrive they risk serving yesterday’s needs.
