The National Infrastructure Commission appointed Mott MacDonald to assess the potential value and expected benefits of investing in new digital and data-driven technologies to support better asset management and drive positive outcomes across infrastructure sectors. As part of this, Mott MacDonald undertook Cost Benefit Analysis in the rail and water sectors across a selection of smart monitoring case studies and applied the results of this analysis to the wider rail and water networks to understand the potential benefit of investing in this technology.

This was one of four pieces of external research commissioned to support the Commission’s study, Data for the Public Good.
