Progress and challenges for UK infrastructure in 2024 review

The latest annual assessment of the government's progress on implementing its commitments on infrastructure from the National Infrastructure Commission

In its recent ‘Infrastructure Progress Review’, the National Infrastructure Commission makes clear that to achieve the level of private investment in infrastructure the UK needs, investors require long-term policy stability and an attractive regulatory regime.

Commenting on the review, Jon Phillips, chief executive of GIIA said: “Our latest sentiment survey of infrastructure investors shows the UK is languishing behind its main competitors in its attractiveness to international investors.

"Political uncertainty and unattractive regulation are identified as major barriers to addressing an infrastructure gap that continues to widen.

“As the push towards the UK’s ambitious net zero target continues, time is running out to crowd-in the investment the country desperately needs.”
