Top Highways Opportunities in The Wild, Wild (South) West

With total investment in the roads sector set to increase by 20% to nearly £6bn per annum in the next four years, there is a new found focus on this “a once in a generation” highways investment programme. Excitingly, as the world turns increasingly to digital methods, there will be a demand for new types of skills as intelligent infrastructure technology becomes part of mainstream delivery solutions.

Sector benefits

The challenge to increase the current highways workforce by 50% within the next four years comes with an array of opportunities available all over the country. In addition, the promise of more and stable investment could provide the impetus for the sector to invest in the people and equipment needed.

Opportunities in the wild, wild (south) west

There isn’t just the Northern Powerhouse. When you consider what the South West has to offer, it’s easy to see how it could lay a claim to being its own self-contained powerhouse.
