Infrastructure plays an important role in levelling up. The White Paper provides a clear plan to level up every corner of the UK, underpinned by 12 ambitious missions. These include that by 2030, local public transport connectivity across the country will be significantly closer to the standards of London, with improved services, simpler fares and integrated ticketing

We have announced a comprehensive programme of policies including a commitment to £4.8 billion infrastructure investment in towns across the UK via the Levelling Up Fund. This will invest in infrastructure that improves everyday life across the UK, including regenerating town centres and high streets, upgrading local transport, and investing in cultural and heritage assets.
