German Infrastructure

The U.S. infrastructure disease is spreading.  From the New York Times on November 21, 2013 by Suzanne Daily and Alison Smale - Germany, Austerity's Champion, Faces Some Big Repair Bills:

"From 1991 to 2012, Germany reduced its budget for maintenance by 20 percent, according to Gernot Sieg, a transportation expert and professor at the University of Muenster.  It now spends 1.5 percent of its gross domestic product on maintenance, compared with a European average of 2.5 percent.  About 46 percent of Germany's bridges, 41 percent of its streets and 20 percent of its highways needs repair, Dr. Sieg said."

  1. I would like to suggest that to repair the streets and bridges you consult to Parallel Infrastructure as they are providing the service of infrastructure and telecom in Florida.
