Local Infrastructure

Effective management and delivery of infrastructure assets has increased in importance as a way of delivering more regionally balanced growth and overcoming the UK’s anaemic productivity growth.

  • The government is investing over £13bn – more than any government in history – to transform northern transport and boost economic growth, with the newly established Transport for the North (TfN) advising the strategy
  • The 2017 update to the National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline has outlined over £460bn of planned public and private investment in infrastructure, rising to an estimated £600bn over the next 10 years
  • Out of 189 countries considered, the UK ranks only 31 in terms of average broadband speeds
  • Existing evidence suggests nearly 50,000 new homes should be built each year in the three northern Regions – 60% more than current build rates
