Investment in Transport Paying Off as more Engineers Turn to Contracting


During the global recession investment in UK transport infrastructure was reduced significantly. However, in the period since, the Government and private firms have splashed the cash and have invested heavily in projects that will allow the UK to continue to grow and operate smoothly. But which schemes are driving demand and what does this mean for engineering specialists?

The £15bn road investment strategy is one considerable factor behind much of the demand. This project has required a huge amount of resources and manpower in an attempt to upgrade the UK’s existing road network which has been pushed to capacity in recent years. The programme was announced in Parliament in December 2014 and includes investment in over 100 new road schemes. Over 1,300 new lane miles are in development, with £1.5 billion pounds solely dedicated to turn existing highways into ‘smart motorways that will boost connectivity between London, Birmingham, Manchester and Yorkshire.
