Investing in Britain's transport network
Yesterday the government set out record investment plans for Britain's transport network, investing £40 billion in transformational transport schemes to unlock economic growth and boost job opportunities across the UK.
- Transport is a down payment on the country’s future and a key driver of economic growth.
- Even in this tough economic climate we are investing £40 billion over the next two years to improve the UK’s transport network. This includes delivering HS2 in the context of inflationary pressures and the need to balance the books and reduce debt.
- This new plan allows us invest record sums in our transport network whilst helping to halve inflation, grow the economy and reduce debt.
