Hammond can signal new era for British infrastructure projects
Decisions on Hinkley Point, Heathrow and HS2 come at a vital time for Britain. Now the chancellor can help to make sure they are successful, and boost communities
Hinkley Point, Heathrow, and next up High Speed 2. One by one, Theresa May’s government is giving the go-ahead to major infrastructure projects that will cost taxpayers billions of pounds.
But who was Chris Grayling kidding when he said of Heathrow’s third runway that the government had taken a “truly momentous” decision and that he was “proud”? It has taken 50 years for a decision about expanding airport capacity in the south-east to be made. That is laughable.
Major infrastructure projects require planning, perseverance and patience to be successful
