Who pays for digging big holes?

Best Western Plus Donnington Manor Hotel, London Road, Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, TN13 2TD


Projects such as the Thames Tideway and Crossrail will have a transformative impact for London and beyond. 

The new London sewer will clean the river Thames and provide resilience for city development. 

Crossrail will link east with west through the capital, promoting growth and providing an instant 10% increase in capacity to the underground tube network. 

One project is privately financed, the other by government. So, who ultimately pays and does it represent best value for the user?

In this presentation, an overview of each project will be explained acknowledging and contrasting the remarkable engineering and planning regimes that have affected delivery. 

Particular focus will be given to project governance and the availability of funds that have underpinned initiation, driven outcomes and the controls for implementation. There are lessons to learn in finding novel ways to fund capital intensive projects before the asset's earning potential can be realised. 

Danny Trup is a highly experienced infrastructure project manager, dealing with complexity that will change London, and he will share the fascination of the governance required during such projects. After all who does pay for digging all these large holes across London?


Danny is a Chartered Project Professional and Member of the APM, on the committee for the Governance Specific Interest Group. He is also a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers and has over 30 years’ experience delivering capital intensive infrastructure projects, including Tideway where he was a project sponsor and on Crossrail where as a client manager, he delivered discrete supporting projects critical to meeting sponsor requirements.
