Edinburgh’s City Deal – The Engineer’s Guide, Edinburgh

Watch this event

£1.1bn of funding has been committed to Edinburgh and the South East by The Scottish Government, UK Government and 6 local authorities. Join Chief Executive of the Scottish Futures Trust Peter Reekie CEng FICE to find out how, where, and when the money will be spent and the opportunities for your business.

As part of a national initiative which has already seen government financed infrastructure deals for Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness, Edinburgh and the South East will now be able to capitalise on their own deal.

The £1.1bn commitment includes £120m for improvements to the Edinburgh City Bypass and £65 million for housing, amongst other significant infrastructure and construction aims. This talk will give an update on progress from the engineers’ perspective and how this important investment in infrastructure will be allocated.

Don’t miss this invaluable insight into this innovative funding mechanism which will impact hugely on local construction companies.

Refreshments at 6pm for a 6.30pm start.
