Infrastructure Ireland 2018

eolas magazine is organising the 2018 Infrastructure Ireland conference which will examine the key elements required to deliver the next generation of infrastructure. Infrastructure investment is a key building block for sustainable economic growth. Investing in important infrastructure projects will be key to ensuring Ireland’s ability to compete globally, enhance our connectivity and give us the potential to transform our economic future and enhance quality of life.

Project Ireland 2040

The Government has just published plans to detail how more than €116 billion will be spent on infrastructure over the next decade and beyond. This was launched alongside the new National Planning Framework – the first time in Irish history that planning and investment have been linked. Project Ireland 2040 will take a radically different approach by focusing not just on bricks and mortar, but on social, economic and cultural development. It also aims to balance rural and urban investment, going some way to avoid the mistakes of the past. In the next twenty years, Ireland’s population will grow by 1 million with 50 per cent of the projected growth planned for our towns, villages and rural areas and 50 per cent for our cities.


To meet Ireland’s needs going forward, a number of innovations will be introduced. These include a longer term strategic approach to public capital investment; a sustained increase in that investment to meet the needs of all communities; four new Funds to target urban and rural renewal, climate action and disruptive technologies; and the establishment of a new National Regeneration and Development Agency to help drive growth in towns and cities across the country.
