Construction Begins On HS2 High-Speed Rail

Construction has officially commenced on the UK’s £106 bn HS2 high-speed rail project, which runs between London and Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds.

The move follows the approval by the Department for Transport (DfT) to HS2 in April 2020 to issue a notice to proceed to the four main works civils contractors (MWCCs).

As a result, the contractors have now commenced full detailed design and construction works of HS2 Phase One, which involves building a high-speed rail line from London to West Midlands.

Planned to be commissioned between 2029 and 2033, the HS2 phase one will comprise four new stations and two new depots.
