The UK government, often criticised for its lack of long-term planning, has announced infrastructure plans worth £375bn, which will include upgrades to rail, road and water transport. Although there is no “new” money going into the projects from the government, the insurance industry is to provide investment worth £25bn. It’s a long report which The Loadstar has yet to fully digest (you can find it here), but it would seem that aviation is not on the menu.
