Poor infrastructure has been a constant refrain in any discussion on urban conditions in the country. However, when it comes to the upper end of the infrastructure spectrum, like expressways and airports, there is indeed evidence of some progress on the ground. Water, sewerage, waste management, transportation, and other key issues are discussed in this chapter.
