The BSA has submitted its response to the Oakervee review in which it emphasises the benefits of continued investment in infrastructure and the importance of rebalancing the UK economy.
The BSA has long made the case for continued efforts to upgrade, extend and modernise the UK’s physical and digital infrastructure. HS2 forms a vital part of this. It represents significant commitment and investment in a modern Britain, not only in improving connectivity but also in enabling a rebalancing of the UK economy and securing the future of the construction and infrastructure sector.
We believe HS2 will bring about significant investment in local economies and help to drive truly inclusive growth, particularly in the North of England and the Midlands.
