Published annually, the National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline details planned infrastructure and construction investment across the public and private sectors.
The pipeline builds on the work of the National Infrastructure Delivery Plan 2016-21, which set out the government’s plans to support the delivery of housing, and social and economic infrastructure. The government has produced regular updates to the pipeline since 2011.
The Analysis of the National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline contains projections of over £600 billion of public and private investment in infrastructure over the next 10 years. This builds on 700 projects, programmes and other investments totalling over £400 billion of planned spend.
The report further includes a delivery progress update, which shows that over 400 infrastructure improvements have been delivered in the past year, including the £63 million Rossall Flood defence scheme in Lancashire. It also provides delivery progress updates on the 158 priority projects identified since 2010.
The publicly funded elements of the pipeline represent announced projects and programmes, but the pipeline does not represent a commitment to undertake all the projects and programmes 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.
