CECA director of external affairs Alasdair Reisner said: “Much of today’s autumn statement will be welcomed by infrastructure contractors.
“The shift from current to capital spending to release additional funding for infrastructure projects, and a continuing commitment from government to deliver private investment into the infrastructure sector, will enable the sector to play its part in returning the UK to sustainable economic growth.
“Over the last year we have demonstrated the contribution that infrastructure can make to growth. It is therefore a shame to see that this growth will be delayed due to a lack of immediate new investment in infrastructure.
“Given the headlines about ‘shovel-ready projects’ leading up to today’s speech, this can only be seen as an opportunity lost.”
