Infrastructure has regained interest in geography and planning studies in course of a global, interdisciplinary 'infrastructural turn' during the last two decades. The new systemic questions around infrastructure development and planning exceed well beyond engineering and technology issues of the former centuries and reach into social, political and economic spheres of debate. Global connectivity, mobility, digitalisation, urbanisation, energy demand, capitalist growth and crises attach their uneven trajectories to infrastructural networks and services. Through that, the development of urban and regional infrastructures may shape new geographies of inequality and re-negotiates standards of infrastructural provision – such as availability, accessibility, affordability, quality and variety. At the same time, normatively spoken, ‘good’ governance and development of infrastructure can be a key for sustainability oriented urban and regional planning as well as policy.
