Four in ten Britons, 40%, choose solar energy infrastructure from a list of 14 sectors as a priority for investment in Britain, with 36% choosing wind energy. Flood defences (39%) and rail infrastructure (39%) are also among top priorities. Environmental impact is top-ranked among seven possible considerations in planning future infrastructure plans by 28% - up from 19% in a similar question asked in 2017 - followed by achieving the highest possible quality (21%) and future resilience (17%). Local disruption and private/public ownership of infrastructure are most likely to be ranked bottom of all factors. Just over a fifth (22%) agree that increased spending on infrastructure should be funded by higher taxes or government borrowing, but 53% think public spending is already high so that taxes and government borrowing should not be increased to improve infrastructure. Six in ten, 62%, would prefer technical experts rather than elected politicians to make decisions about new infrastructure, and by 57% to 14% Britons choose maintaining and repairing existing infrastructure before spending on new infrastructure. The findings come from the latest Global Infrastructure Index survey conducted by Ipsos MORI in partnership with the GIIA in 28 countries across the world including Britain.
