Election 2017 | Decision day

British Houses of Parliament 3to2

Today Britain decides who will form the next government in an election campaign which the Conservatives meant to be about Brexit, but in the final days terrorist attacks in Manchester and London put national security at the top of the agenda.

As the country goes to the polls, we give you a recap of the main Brexit issues for the civil engineering profession in the run up to a General Election which will determine who will lead the negotiations with the European Union (EU) when they start later this month.

The ICE-led Brexit Infrastructure Group warned party leaders in May about skill shortages resulting from the UK’s decision to leave the EU.

Building on the infrastructure pipeline is the key priority for economic growth in the wake of Brexit, according to a paper called Delivering Post-Brexit Growth, published by the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (Ceca) in May.

New Civil Engineer will bring you the industry reaction as it happens tomorrow. Follow our live updates on our website throughout the day.
