Scottish Government to unveil infrastructure pipeline

The Scottish Government will this week publish an infrastructure pipeline of more than 50 major projects and 30 programmes across Scotland.

Cabinet secretary for infrastructure and capital investment Alex Neil said the publication of the Infrastructure Investment Plan will demonstrate Scottish Government action, but also underline the urgent and pressing case for substantial new borrowing powers to allow even more investment.

“This week I will publish a plan to invest billions in more than 80 major capital projects and programmes that will keep Scotland’s economy moving,” said Neil. “All of these projects will signal a clear intent and provide the kind of solid foundations and certainty our construction industry demands.

“With the Westminster cuts in our capital budget, and the Autumn Statement providing far too little, far too late, our plan will have maximum value for taxpayers’ money at its heart.”
