... a majority of British people would trust technical experts to make big infrastructure decisions ahead of politicians, a survey by MORI for the CBI has found.

The research shows that the government and businesses need to do a much better job of explaining the UK's infrastructure investment needs, shifting the focus to why it matters locally and what benefits projects will bring.

It reveals that two thirds of people agree that decisions should be delayed so that the public's views can be heard properly, even if this means that infrastructure weaknesses are not tackled when they need to be.

That compares with only 24% who don't think decisions should be delayed. People are currently more concerned by the inconvenience and potential disruption of upgrade work than the risk of failing to act.
