The Northern Powerhouse is very much in the news at the moment, with the Government pledging investment to help stimulate the economy in the North West through improving transport and infrastructure.
“No Government has given such attention to the infrastructure of our great northern cities and how to deliver a world-class, integrated transport network for the North.”
Rt HonPatrick McLoughlin MP, Secretary of State for Transport
The publication of the Northern Transport Strategy earlier this year highlights the major transport and infrastructure projects planned for the North West. With projected pipeline figures of up to £40 billion on infrastructure projects due to begin between 2015 and 2018, the opportunities in this region are substantial.
For suppliers looking to learn more about the future of infrastructure in the North West, as well as engage with the major projects in the pipeline, the CompeteFor Supply Chain Summit 2015 is the must-attend event of the year.
