With the announcement this week of the Government's backing of a third runaway at Heathrow, forecast at £18bn, the UK now has a pipeline of infrastructure projects in excess of £400 billion including High Speed 2, Crossrail 2, Hinkley Point and expansion at London City airport. Exciting times ahead and great to see the confidence in the UK to drive these large scale projects forward. 

Although the delivery timelines for each of these projects are on different (flight) paths the focus will soon target the skills shortage to deliver these projects, but fantastic opportunities for graduates and apprentices to get involved with large scale projects without the need to search overseas for the experience.
