In Wednesday’s speech, the Government announced 2 bills coming in the next Session of Parliament that will see high speed rail pressing ahead. Following that and an event I chaired on that evening with the Shadow Rail minister and a Director from each of HS2 Ltd and PwC, I wrote a piece for politics.co.uk which you can read here.
The progress HS2 Ltd are making is impressive and the organisation is scaling up to push on with this huge project at a rapid pace. There is no doubt that we will soon see and hear more of HS2 Ltd – especially as we start seeing significant procurement and engagement with what is going to be a huge number of suppliers from across Britain. Hopefully we will start to hear more good news stories and less cynicism towards the coming, at long last, of a national high speed rail network.
