Yesterday, the UK Government published their long-awaited National Infrastructure Strategy. This strategy outlines the government’s plans to develop the UK’s infrastructure networks. It’s three central objectives are economic recovery; levelling up and strengthening the Union; and meeting the UK’s net zero emissions target by 2050. By providing up to £27 billion, the government wants to deliver a radical improvement into the quality of our UK Infrastructure.

With the announcement of the Government latest infrastructure strategy, we have complied a list of our key takeaways, which we can categorise into two main talking points: Levelling up the UK, and decarbonising the economy
To unite and level up the UK, the government aims to unleash the full potential of the Union, thriving regions, and cities across the country. To do this, the government are looking at delivering major investment across the UK, with a focus on areas that may have received less support in the past.
Infrastructure investment is fundamental to delivering net zero emissions by 2050. By accelerating the deployment of existing technologies, as well as advancing new developments such as carbon capture and low-carbon hydrogen, the government aims to tackle climate change face on as well as create jobs to support the UK’s recovery from Covid-19.
