National Strategy for Infrastructure released

HM Treasury has  published  a new National Strategy for Infrastructure, which forms the economic backbone of the UK

Increased levels of investment will be required to renew and maintain existing infrastructure and meet the new challenge of setting our economy on a low-carbon trajectory.
