We were delighted to see the government’s new National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline (NPIF) setting out over £500 billion worth of planned private and public investment over this Parliament and beyond with more than 40% of the pipeline being delivered thanks to government investment.
The pipeline is published by the government’s Infrastructure and Projects Authority.
What does the new NPIF contains?
- Over £500 billion of planned investment, with over £300 billion of this to be invested by 2020/21
- Over 720 projects and programmes across transport, housing and digital to fire up the nation’s infrastructure
- Around 20 new schemes have been added to the pipeline since March 2016, including the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway
The Construction Products Association believes that, given the importance of the infrastructure sector in supporting improved productivity, skills and resource planning, this new NPIF will provide construction product manufacturers and distributors more clarity and certainty about essential, long-term investment.
