“The Prime Minister clearly acknowledges the case for infrastructure investment as a driver of economic growth and the Government seems determined to get projects moving.”
“The recent KPMG/CBI Infrastructure Survey revealed that the majority of businesses in the UK are concerned over the state of the country’s infrastructure. We need swift investment across Britain’s road and rail networks, digital, waste and energy infrastructure to ensure we remain internationally competitive and kick-start growth.”
“The challenge is to find projects that are ‘shovel-ready’ to start today, given the collapse in the pipeline over recent years and the complexity of the UK planning system.”
