Event Information: 

In this webinar we’ll focus on physical infrastructure and the major development works set to happen over coming years.

The Government has committed to unprecedented spend on developing the UK’s infrastructure unlocking new economic corridors across the UK and providing much needed connectivity for so many of the UK’s regions but how do we measure the impact on the UK’s economy?  We will hear from some of the leading UK’s infrastructure providers as to how their model works and the return that they can see on their investment and we will also hear from those that will benefit from the investment ie: Councils and developers whose schemes become viable once this new network is in place.
