The report provides detailed post-Brexit analysis on the infrastructure market in the UK, including an in-depth assessment of the current state of infrastructure and all major projects in the construction pipeline. The report covers all key infrastructure sectors: roads, railways, electricity and power, water and sewerage, communication, and airports and ports.
Spending on infrastructure construction in the UK is set to increase at a relatively fast pace in the coming decade. The total value of the infrastructure construction market reached GBP28.2 billion in 2015, according to Timetric, up from GBP18.8 billion in 2010, and it will rise to GBP40.7 billion in 2020 (in nominal value terms).
This growth in spending is based on the assumption that a number of the large-scale transport and power projects move ahead as planned, including the GBP50 billion High Speed 2 rail network, Hinkley Point C nuclear power station, and the expansion of Heathrow Airport. However, in view of the recent political upheaval in the UK political scene and the UK’s planned exit from the EU, there is a growing risk that many of these large-scale projects will be delayed or cancelled.

The UK government has expressed its determination to deliver better infrastructure so as to support the economy’s growth and improve opportunities for people across the country. This is in part a reflection of the fact that although the UK has a well-developed physical infrastructure, in general its quality falls below that of other advanced economies.
The government is proceeding with efforts to establish by legislation the National Infrastructure Commission as an independent body tasked with determining the long-term strategy for the UK’s infrastructure development.
