What is the new Procurement Pipeline?
This new National Infrastructure and Construction Procurement Pipeline comes at a moment of pandemic crisis without precedent in recent times. Construction workers across the country have played a vital role in keeping this country running during the COVID-19 pandemic. Much of their work is critical in supporting people’s everyday lives. This ranges from building hospitals, to maintaining crucial transport and utilities networks, and ensuring buildings are kept safe.
Work on much of the country’s essential infrastructure has not been stalled by the current crisis. Due to the effects of lockdown, infrastructure projects have been able to take advantage of the reduced car traffic to make crucial repairs to roads. This includes key schemes being brought forward to achieve Government priorities such as the A14 in Cambridgeshire, where £20 million of work was completed over the Easter weekend, helping the project to open to traffic early.
