Infrastructure Planning: Strategies for Sustainable Development
The infrastructure supplies the backbone for any fully functional economy. Roads with their control systems, railway systems, airports as well as all pipelines for gas, district heating, water, sewage, electricity and light all of these areas are just a part of an ever expanding infrastructure.
