Megaprojects like Hinkley Point C nuclear are now blamed for shortages of materials for up to 2500 construction firms

HS2 and Hinkley Point blamed for concrete shortages. Megaprojects have
been accused of gobbling up concrete supplies, while steelmakers face a
magnesium drought caused by China. Ian Anfield, managing director of Hudson
Contract, which provides ­services to more than 2,500 construction firms,
said small builders cannot compete for materials with mega-­projects such
as HS2 and Hinkley nuclear power plant.

The British Merchants Federation
(BMF) and the Construction Products Association (CPA) have set up a task
force with the Government and major schemes including HS2 and the Hinkley
nuclear plant to monitor the situation.
