Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport Survey

A survey published today by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport further supports the principle that the Coalition should protect UK infrastructure spending to some extent. The survey of 1244 members stated that “supporting economic growth” is the key reason for transport spending to be protected, and within that “increasing the capacity of the conventional rail network and road maintenance are seen as the top priorities”. It is a long held principle that investing in UK infrastructure within a recession benefits the economy in the longer run. The previous Government were following this path and, despite the proposed cuts, there are signs that the new Government favour some key projects, particularly in the rail transport sector. We support any infrastructure spending that delivers improved facilities for business and places companies or the UK as a whole in a more competitive position as we move out of recession.
