Euston, we have a problem: is Britain ready for an infrastructure revolution?
11 March 2020
The centrepiece of the new government’s first Budget is expected to be an ‘infrastructure revolution’ – spending at least an additional £100 billion over the next five years on public investment.
This Resolution Foundation report considers how the money should be spent in order to maximise its impact, including improving access to health care.
It considers how the £100 billion increase stacks up with public investment historically and compares with other countries; what the key priorities should be for future investment; and how the government should invest to get the maximum return for the taxpayer.
