The Major Projects Authority and Infrastructure UK were merged to form the Infrastructure and Projects Authority on 1 January 2016.

Infrastructure Advisory Council

The Infrastructure Advisory Council acts as a sounding board for Infrastructure UK, strengthening links between government and the private sector.

The permanent secretaries who sit on the board represent the government departments responsible for delivering economic infrastructure projects. They sit alongside private sector representatives, who have been chosen for their leadership, expertise and abilities across a range of infrastructure fields including construction, operations, regulation, financing and technology.
