Commenting on the news that the Department for Infrastructure has granted planning approval for the Belfast Transport Hub, Construction Employers Federation Managing Director John Armstrong said...
An important benchmark on which any government should be judged is their performance on financing and delivering key infrastructure projects…
The financing and delivery of such projects is a crucial barometer as a means to unlock investment, create thousands of jobs both directly and through the construction multiplier effect, and give the local construction industry and greater sense of Northern Ireland’s infrastructure pipeline.
By growing and enhancing our infrastructure offer, as well as looking at innovative funding solutions, we can enhance our competitiveness and attractiveness as a region to do business and invest in.
