Irish Academy of Engineering (IAE) 2018The report was prepared by an Academy taskforce and is one of a series that has and will continue to focus on important topics with a significant engineering dimension The Academy generally seeks to engage with issues of longer term import but on occasion will also address more pressing subjects with a view to helping to identify appropriate solutions. No issue is more immediate and pressing from the current Irish standpoint than that of Brexit. The ongoing uncertainties generated by the process of UK withdrawal from the EU as well as the dependence of a high proportion of Irish trade on either the British market or access to third countries via Great Britain pose significant risks requiring attention. This report on the implications for transport infrastructure investment is both timely and, it is intended as, a contribution by the Academy to the overall Brexit discussion.
