My name's René Lavanchy. I'm a freelance journalist specialising in infrastructure, particularly financing, funding, procurement and policy. This blog parades a little of what I know (more here).
I've written about infrastructure for The Guardian, Total Politics magazine, Private Eye magazine and Modern Railways magazine amongst others. I also help out a certain corporate entity with it. Previously I was a senior reporter at Infrastructure Journal and a political/industrial/policy reporter at Tribune magazine.
I'm always interested in hearing about freelance writing and other opportunities. You can contact me at rene dot lavanchy at googlemail dot com.
