Government Construction and Infrastructure Pipeline – April 2012
The Government has published on 26 April 2012 the third edition of the Funded Construction Pipeline, fulfilling the commitments made in the Plan for Growth at Budget 2011.The Construction and Infrastructure Pipeline consolidates the Government Funded Construction Pipeline and the National Infrastructure Plan pipeline for public, regulated and private sector infrastructure. The Funded Construction Pipeline will be updated on a six monthly basis, the Infrastructure Investment Pipeline data will be refreshed annually.
For convenience the infrastructure and construction pipeline data have been released as single file.
The combined construction and infrastructure pipeline data covers over 600 projects and programmes across both the public and private sectors. The Government Funded Construction Pipeline includes circa £40bn of projects and programmes over 4 years to 2014/15 (excluding rail and other regulated and private sector infrastructure investment).
Using this information, businesses will have more confidence over Government spending on construction and make more intelligent decisions over where they should invest and plan to compete.
Since the November publication of the Funded Construction Pipeline of future work, the Government has worked together with industry and government construction spending departments to improve the pipeline for this publication. This latest edition is substantially improved from that in November in terms of its level of granularity and its ‘reach’ beyond the major construction spending departments, to those who either through their own activities or through their agencies, ALBs etc, have lesser but still significant construction programmes. Progressively it is hoped that the majority of central government construction spend will be in the Construction and Infrastructure Pipeline.
