The mundane truth is that large infrastructure projects take a lot of political & commercial will to drive.
Look at India. Everyone will agree that it makes sense that India should upgrade its public infrastructure. Its roads, its railways, its airports, its everything.
Who's going to drive this? The political leaders? But the political leaders in so many countries are paralysed by a hundred other smaller battles. Look at Obama, how he struggles to get a little piece of legislation passed.
