Contractors get April green light for HS2 civils start

Boris Johnson gave the green light to HS2 on Tuesday promising a major shake-up in the way the project is managed.

He confirmed main civils work on phase 1 to Birmingham will get underway in April and promised a management reorganisation at the HS2 delivery body to avoid further blowouts from cost rises and delays.

Johnson told Parliament he would appoint a new dedicated minister with specific oversight and accountability for HS2.

There will also be a new committee to oversee the project, as the role for the Government-owned company HS2 Ltd was downgraded.

HS2 Ltd will be told to focus on successfully delivering Phases 1 and 2a, and making new delivery arrangements for Euston station to ensure better value for money and on-time delivery.
