Don't Put The Brakes On The UK's Infrastructure
Words must be turned into action on major projects, Josh Hardie tells the National Infrastructure Commission.
Josh Hardie, CBI Deputy Director-General, said:
"Right now, we have a truly golden opportunity to transform the backbone of the United Kingdom - our infrastructure - making it the envy of the world and of our international competitors.
"But this once in a generation moment to fix a corner stone of our economy can only be a success if words are turned into action, if pens are put down and diggers are started up. From Heathrow to HS2, we can build our way to a new era of growth, productivity and shared prosperity, so it's absolutely vital the Government doesn't put the brakes on.
"Pushing ahead with improving our infrastructure is a tremendous opportunity to bridge north and south, to strengthen the arteries that connect communities, to build the homes people so badly need, and improve their often arduous journeys to work. If we get this right, we are on the verge of a new dawn for British infrastructure."
