What we do

Infrastructure UK is a unit within the Treasury, that works on the UK’s long-term infrastructure priorities and secures private sector investment.

Responsibilities

We are responsible for:

  • co-ordinating and simplifying the planning and prioritisation of investment in UK infrastructure
  • improving UK infrastructure by achieving greater value for money on infrastructure projects and transitions

Priorities

In 2014 our priorities are:

  • to improve the economic infrastructure sectors (energy, transport, waste, flood, science, water and telecoms)
  • to continue working on the government’s top 40 projects identified in the National Infrastructure Plan
  • to secure £200 billion of investment over the next 5 years, the majority of which will come from private sector
  • to supports major infrastructure projects where there is capital investment from the public sector (for example, Crossrail, Broadband Delivery UK, and Smart Meters)
  • the UK Guarantees scheme, introduced to avoid delays to investment in UK infrastructure

Who we are

The unit is made up of civil servants and private sector commercial experts. We’re based in HM Treasury in Whitehall.
