The “landmark” National Infrastructure Strategy is expected to pump billions into the country’s infrastructure.
Mr Javid said: “To maximise our growth potential as we leave the EU, I’m announcing today that I’ll publish a National Infrastructure Strategy in the Autumn.
“I will set out our plans for a step change in infrastructure investment right across the country.
“From the latest tech to the fastest trains so that every corner of our great nation can thrive.”
Boris Johnson vowed to boost Britain’s infrastructure while on the campaign trail to be Tory leader.
The announcement came after bleak figures showed Britain’s economy shrank by 0.2 per cent in the last quarter.
Team Boris say pumping more cash into the country’s roads and railways will kick-start growth while improving the lives of ordinary Brits.
