Market Robust as Transportation Projects Seen as Key to Recovery

Publication Date: 12/23/2009
Author: Tom Nicholson
Format: HTML

In the void left by collapsed construction markets around the world, transportation projects are not only a holdout of relatively robust activity but are embraced globally as a vital step on the road to recovery. Firms in the transportation sector are crisscrossing the globe as developing nations race to build new roads, railways and airports, while in America, Europe and the Middle East new technologies and growing populations are pushing projects forward. In the sector currently are some of the largest projects in the world, such as the $10-billion Al Maktoum International Airport being built in Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates.
