Chairman of the National Infrastructure Commission Lord Adonis recently emphasised the need to continue investment in the country’s infrastructure, and the broad political consensus in place for major projects such as HS2 to proceed.

Speaking at the National Infrastructure Forum, Lord Adonis said:

“Amid all the political developments and differences, it is easy to lose sight of the broad political consensus already in place for some of the country’s biggest infrastructure projects.

“HS2 and Crossrail continue at pace, and there is support within all the major parties for a third runway at Heathrow – all examples of why we should continue to have confidence in the industry.

“So I would urge anyone considering their next investments not to be distracted by headlines, but to continue their long-term plans to deliver those infrastructure projects in the pipeline.”
