US President Donald Trump today unveiled a massive USD 1(point)5 trillion plan to modernise America’s infrastructure including USD 200 billion in federal funding.

Describing it as a most comprehensive infrastructure bill in the history of the US, Trump said the plan addresses more than traditional infrastructure like roads, bridges and airports, such as drinking and wastewater systems, waterways, water resources, energy, rural infrastructure, public lands, veterans’ hospitals and Brownfield and Superfund sites.

Trump said the reforms set forth in the plan will strengthen the economy, make our country more competitive, reduce the costs of goods and services for American families and enable Americans to build their lives on top of the best infrastructure in the world.
