Thirteen of Britain’s largest construction and development companies have written to the Chancellor George Osborne urging him to live up to his mantra to “be the builders” and approve Heathrow expansion.

 

The letter, which highlights Britain’s relatively poor record in infrastructure investment relative to other OECD countries, sends a clear message that the UK’s “builders” are ready to deliver.  Stressing that in a time of global economic uncertainty the UK can ill-afford to delay on a project worth £15.6 billion to the UK supply chain, it calls on the Chancellor to let them help create a better Britain by green-lighting what would be the nation’s largest privately-funded infrastructure project. Doing so would  drive investment in the UK labour market, creating thousands of new skilled jobs while providing a legacy of high-profile expertise that can be sold around the world.

 

Tomorrow, Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye will address an audience of business leaders including the UK construction industry in his first speech since the Government’s response to the Airports Commission in December.
