The Infrastructure metrics will track investment in public tangible capital.

Geographical inequalities to the UK’s economy can be transformed by infrastructure investment – from full fibre broadband, new 5G networks and smart technologies (such as autonomous vehicles and remote patient monitoring) to high-speed rail connecting people to jobs and opportunities, the regeneration of stations and airports and upgrades to the road network.

The Industrial Strategy is focused on supporting how people live in communities, including high quality housing and clean, affordable energy. Much of the investment is large scale and long term, and it is one of the most significant ways the government can influence the economy.
