Costain's CEO responds to Chancellor's Spending Review 2020

Alex Vaughan


25 November 2020

Infrastructure investment needs effective and agile governance, structure, and processes to ensure it can realise the desired economic, environmental, and social return behind the Government’s vision announced in today’s spending review. At Costain we believe that exceptional programme leadership is critical to the safer, better, greener, faster and more efficient delivery of infrastructure projects and key to achieving the sustainable operational performance required to not only bounce back from COVID-19, but thrive. However, no two areas of the UK are the same. Careful consideration of local as well as national aspirations will ensure the social, environmental and economic value of infrastructure projects delivers the Government’s vision to level up, decarbonise and meaningfully improve the lives of local communities. Costain has been improving people’s lives for more than 155 years and we look forward to continuing our support to the Government in strengthening the UK’s place in the world.
