Experts question feds' P3 role

Exclusive: Key industry experts have questioned the role of federal government in supporting US P3s following the latest announcement from President Donald Trump in his State of the Union address.

Speaking on Monday, Trump appeared to back the use of P3s, although gave no indication of when a new bill to deliver infrastructure would be delivered.

This is causing frustration among sections of the market, with some sources now saying that it could be next year before the federal government turns its attention to infrastructure.
