Infrastructure output continues to fall

Cranes 2by3

Infrastructure output has fallen for the fourth month running, official data has revealed.

Office for National Statistics figures published today showed that £1.34bn of new infrastructure work was carried out in November 2015.

This was down from £1.41bn in October and £1.52bn in July.

Infrastructure output in November - the month chancellor George Osborne set out plans to spend £73bn on roads and rail over the six years to April 2021 - was the lowest since December 2014. 

Construction output as a whole fell to £10.7bn – its lowest figure for more than 12 months.

All figures are seasonally adjusted.
