National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline 2016

A forward-looking pipeline of planned projects and programmes in housing, economic and social infrastructure.



The new consolidated National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline brings together and updates the previous separate infrastructure and construction pipelines. The merger of these two pipelines builds on the work of the National Infrastructure Delivery Plan, which set out the government’s plans to support the delivery of housing, and social and economic infrastructure.

The National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline is a forward-looking assessment of the planned investment in infrastructure across the public and private sectors. It contains over 700 projects and programmes with a total value of more than £500 billion.

The publicly funded elements of the pipeline represent announced projects and programmes but the publication of the pipeline does not represent a commitment to undertake all the projects and programme shown. In privately funded sectors, the decision to go ahead with individual projects will be determined by the market. The pipeline for regulated sectors is consistent with agreed regulatory settlements.
