Yesterday, Labour leader Ed Miliband unveiled the details of how his government would set up a national infrastructure commission or the UK if it won the general election next year. I think this is a very good idea, and I’ve done a blogpost for The Spectator magazine’s Coffee House blog saying so. You can read it here.
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.
