star this property answer text <p>Since 2010, over 4,900 public and private infrastructure projects have been successfully delivered.</p><p>In particular, since 2010, the government has earmarked 158 major projects as being of national significance and a priority, including 90 listed in the National Infrastructure Delivery Plan 2016-2021. IPA tracks and publishes the delivery progress of all 158 projects, publishing a National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline document each year. As reported in the current edition of the Pipeline, published in November 2018, the vast majority are being delivered, with 98% completed or on track to deliver.</p><p>In 2018 alone, over 400 infrastructure projects were completed and moved into operation across a number of sectors. In the North West, for example, these included major investments such as the Walney Extension wind farm capable of powering over 600,000 homes; 2km of new flood defences to protect thousands of homes in Rossall on the coast of Lancashire; and the UK’s first Proton Beam Therapy centre at Christie Hospital in Manchester.</p><p>But it is not just major projects such as these which are having a real impact on people’s lives. We are also delivering hundreds of smaller projects across the UK.</p>
