From bridges to flood defences, firms sent dozens of pictures of the schemes bringing huge benefits to the economy, with signs declaring “We are #BuildingBritain”.
The photos, featuring numerous hard hats and high viz jackets, were added to a dedicated blog page highlighting the great work taking place.
Infrastructure company Kier took dozens of photos of its staff working on big projects, including the £8 million Western Link road from Berryfields to Buckingham in the Midlands.
In Hayle, Cornwall, 21 workers from Bowmer & Kirkland, the construction company working on the redevelopment of South Quay, held up signs to demonstrate their commitment to helping Build Britain.
Other firms which took part included Carillion, Balfour Beatty, Skanska, Atkins, Crossrail, Centria, Laing O’Rourke and Simons, while industry bodies, such as the Chartered Institute of Building, the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, also backed the scheme.
As part of this government’s long-term economic plan, more than 200 projects in rail, road, local transport, flood defences, broadband, airport infrastructure and waste management are due to start construction in 2014 to 2015.
Another 200 infrastructure projects are also due to be completed this year, including major roads such as the M6 J10A-13, Nottingham tram extension, Heathrow Terminal 2 upgrade and Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm, which is currently the largest in construction anywhere in Europe.
