The Government sets out its Top 40 priority infrastructure investments, to support the delivery of its objectives in each sector.

The selection criteria published in the National Infrastructure Plan 2014 are considered the most relevant for the four communications investments listed and are significant enough to merit the inclusion of these investments within the Top 40. In some cases the projects and programmes are expected to have wider benefits which mean they also deliver against other criteria, such as unlocking private investment.
