UK 'fully committed' to infrastructure upgrades despite Brexit, says transport secretary

Date: 29 June 2016   |   Author: Daniel Puddicombe

The transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin has claimed the UK is "fully committed" to its infrastructure projects despite possible economic uncertainly following the UK's vote to leave Europe last week.

McLoughlin said the country "faces a period of readjustment but we do so from a position of strength" following the Brexit vote, adding that infrastructure upgrades remained a priority for the Government.

"We are delivering the largest spend on the roads for a generation," he said as he added that investment in long-term infrastructure would continue. "It is more important not less important than ever before," he said at the National Infrastructure Forum event in London.

"Big infrastructure projects are always controversial, but usually when we build them people say 'you should have done that a long time ago'. So, infrastructure investment will continue," McLoughlin added. "It is vital that the UK is seen to be open for business. Our infrastructure is fit for the future, the economy is strong and Government and business will pull together for the common good as they always have. We will continue to do so over the coming years."
