star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of good local bus and rail infrastructure to businesses. For this reason, I am working with the Secretary of State for Transport to ensure that upgrading infrastructure is one of the key pillars of the Government’s emerging Industrial Strategy.</p><p>In addition to our work on the emerging Industrial Strategy, the Government continues both to invest in transport infrastructure and to provide new powers to local areas, to ensure local transport services meets the needs of businesses and the wider community. As such we are investing £46bn to operate and enhance the railway between 2014-19 and a further £900m, through the Local Growth Fund, towards schemes that improve rail and bus infrastructure. We have also given local communities new ways to improve local transport for the benefit of businesses. For example, the Bus Services Act gives new powers to local authorities and bus operators to work with local businesses to provide the services they need.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Last December, the Government issued updated guidance to public sector contracting authorities on how to ensure that they take full account of the value provided by UK steel producers when conducting their procurement activities. Since publication of the guidance, the Government has been working closely with central government departments, including the Department for Transport, to monitor the impact and effectiveness of the guidance.</p><p>The Government has also published details of upcoming steel requirements for national infrastructure projects. The data shows how the government plans to use three million tonnes of steel until 2020 on infrastructure projects such as High Speed 2 (HS2), the construction of Hinkley Point, and the maintenance and upgrading of the UK’s motorway network. This steel-specific pipeline complements the National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline, which set out over £500 billion worth of planned private and public investment.</p><p>In order to maximise British involvement in supply chain opportunities in the construction of HS2, HS2 has engaged extensively with businesses of all sizes from a diverse range of sectors and across the UK; also working closely with UK Steel, British Constructional Steel Association, the Galvanisers Association and the Confederation of British Metalforming.</p><p>HS2 Ltd’s recently announced successful Main Works Contractor Tenderers have all confirmed they will comply with works information and further the requirements and spirit of HM Government Procurement Guidance on steel. HS2 will continue to engage with any British business that is interested in supporting its supply chain, throughout the lifetime of the programme.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
