The Scottish Government has committed £6.4 billion for a number of big projects such as Orkney’s new hospital, the A737 Dalry Bypass and Forth Valley College’s Falkirk Campus.
We’ve already seen major projects near completion for this year including the M8 M73 M74 improvements and the frankly awesome Queensferry Crossing. The benefits from these will be huge in the years to come in terms of the economy and our personal convenience as travellers.
Meanwhile we hear the £100 million HS2 high-speed rail link in England might be cancelled in fear of Brexit costs. Let’s hope so because otherwise Scottish taxpayers would be contributing to something else they would not benefit from.
