Expect to see hard hats galore as 100-day countdown to general election begins

The general election is now 100 days away, which means the starting gun has been fired on the political parties’ campaign trails.

Housing is set to be a central economic battleground in the run up to the election, and construction growth in recent quarters has contributed to a brighter outlook for the UK economy more widely.

Construction News therefore expects pictures like these will be splashed across the internet and newspapers in the coming weeks as politicians look to prove their credentials on construction and convince voters their party is the one to deliver continued growth in the sector.
