The Government’s newly-announced National Infrastructure Delivery Plan has been welcomed by the Freight Transport Association (FTA) as a co-ordinated and comprehensive approach to future infrastructure planning.

The plan brings together all the Government’s infrastructure priorities for the next five years including its commitment to build a Northern Powerhouse connecting major towns and cities in the north. The plan highlights more than £425 billion of planned investment in 600 major projects to 2021 and beyond.
