Another Key Government Projects 'At Risk Of Failure'

Dozens of major Government projects including the High Speed 2 rail line, Universal Credit welfare reform and the rollout of high-speed broadband are at serious risk of failure, Whitehall documents reveal.

There are 23 schemes which have had amber/red warning flags raised against them in the report, meaning successful delivery of the project is in doubt and urgent action needs to be taken to tackle problems in various areas.

A further eight, including the construction of two new aircraft carriers, were given a straight red rating - assessed as appearing to be unachievable as a result of schedule, budget or delivery problems.
