Benefits of high speed rail

Our members have helped deliver major infrastructure projects in the UK and around the world, ranging from creating entirely new high speed networks through to maintaining and improving the UK’s existing rail network. This gives us a unique insight into both the shortcomings in the current network, and the transformative capacity and connectivity benefits that high speed rail can bring.

More than 2,000 apprenticeships are expected to be created around the HS2 project, offering people from all backgrounds the chance to work in a sector that is growing not just nationally, but globally. Overall the Core Cities Group estimates HS2 will underpin the delivery of 400,000 new jobs.

Members of High Speed Rail Industry Leaders are already on the ground delivering HS2; Phase 1 of the project is off to a great start, with enabling works underway, of almost £20 billion of contracts let to date.

The introduction of high speed rail in the UK offers a huge opportunity to innovate across a wide variety of capabilities, from cutting edge technology and design, to the development of improved partnerships and new ways of working.

The HS2 project has created a renewed interest in the rail and construction sector, with our members reporting significant interest in opportunities to work in the rail and construction sector design build and for the next generation of high speed trains.
