urban infrastructure
Explanation:
I really think it is just as straightforward as this. I can't think of another way to put it which would circumvent the use of cognates.

The only other possibility I can think of would be "city infrastructure", but I really think "urban" is better. These are perfectly common and normal Eng. terms.
