We welcome the Government’s renewed commitment to delivering HS2 to Manchester, as set out in the Autumn Statement. HS2 is essential to national prosperity. As well as supporting 34,000 jobs, the project is vital for creating better connected, modern infrastructure, benefiting the UK and growing the economy for decades to come. HS2 also forms the backbone of the Government’s Levelling Up agenda.
HSRG fully understands the significance of the public investment granted to the HS2 project, and we are steadfast in our commitment to delivering cost-effectively. We will continue to work with the Government to ensure every penny spent goes toward maximising public benefit and delivering returns for the whole UK.
