Civils workloads up

Infrastructure output is on the up, according to official figures.

The Office for National Statistics today estimated the value of new infrastructure work carried out in April at £1.02bn.

This is 0.6% higher than in the previous month, although it remained 7.6% lower than in April 2013.

Overall construction output rose by 1.2% - or £113M – from March to April this year. Repair and maintenance work accounted for the majority of the increase.

The ONS also revised up its construction output estimate for the first quarter of this year. It said this could see GDP increased by 0.1 percentage points.
