Infrastructure projects are often an important way to develop the economy. To provide some basic information on the matter you might want to look at some good information sources, such as RSMEANS (http://www.reedconstructiondata.com/rsmeans/models/) or SPGMedia (http://www.spgmedia.com/). These sites can provide a good indication what various types of infrastructure can cost. There are several things you will have to keep in mind though, one of those things is whether your nation has the technology to construct the type of infrastructure you are planning. Roads, Highways and train rails are available for construction to most of the worlds nations, however high speed rail, ports, airports are more specific and not available to all. The links provided also give you a good indication of what various projects cost in other nations, so a little calculation can provide a good indication for others as well.
