£6.4 billion of infrastructure projects for Scotland

The Scottish Government’s Infrastructure Investment Plan progress report has revealed that infrastructure projects worth almost £6.4 billion will be under construction throughout Scotland in 2017.

Projects such as the Forth Valley College Falkirk Campus, NHS Orkney’s New Hospital and Healthcare Facilities and the A737 Dalry Bypass will all commence construction this year.

Keith Brown, Economy Secretary, said: “Significant progress continues to be made in delivering our infrastructure investment plan, which is good for jobs, good for the economy, and good for Scotland.

“I am delighted that projects totalling almost £800 million were completed last year, and that this year we are anticipating a further £2.8 billion worth of infrastructure projects being completed and becoming operational including the Queensferry Crossing. I look forward to seeing these projects come to completion, but also seeing Scottish companies continuing to benefit from this government’s record levels of infrastructure investment in the years to come.”
