Building a Better Future for the Construction Industry

CECA: HS2 “vital to delivering post-Brexit growth”   17th July 2017

Civils contractors have welcomed today’s announcement that the Government has confirmed the route of HS2 north of Birmingham.

Commenting, Director of External Affairs for the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) Marie-Claude Hemming said: “We welcome today’s announcement that the Government is to move forward with HS2 as a major step towards boosting connectivity across the UK.

“CECA members have extensive experience delivering major projects on time and on budget. We must now move forward to getting spades in the ground on what will be the most important infrastructure scheme built yet this century.

“HS2 will be vital to delivering economic growth in England’s regions, creating thousands of jobs, and carrying 300,000 passengers a day. 

“Moreover, as the UK looks towards our future outside the European Union, it will be vital to securing the economy and delivering post-Brexit growth.

“Our members now look forward to working with Government to deliver this world-class project without delay.”
