Mineral Products Association

The Mineral Products Association welcomes the Prime Minister’s announcement confirming HS2 will go ahead. 


Having recently called on government to make a firm decision, and “get HS2 done”, MPA is pleased that our members, who have already made significant investments in the necessary capacity, can focus with confidence on supplying the vast tonnages of concrete, aggregates and other mineral products needed.

 

Chief Executive of the MPA, Nigel Jackson, said:

 

“We have been calling for this decision for some time so it is very welcome news. Credit where it is due, Government has now made its decision. MPA members are ready to supply materials for constructing HS2 and all other infrastructure.

 

“The new Government’s commitment to infrastructure is welcome news and we hope to see a sustained focus on delivering projects in the pipeline.”
