Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, is holding its Annual General Meeting at 11am today, where the following comments will be read out.
Balfour Beatty continues to make good progress on the Build to Last transformation programme, with overall trading remaining in line with expectations. The Group order book is expected to show some growth in the first half due to good order intake in the US, whilst the UK construction order book is expected to be broadly stable.
