Phase One of £56bn HS2 gains Royal Assent

Britain’s biggest infrastructure project in decades cleared the final hurdle to construction yesterday as the HS2 Hybrid Bill received Royal Assent.

It paves the way for the nine-year construction programme to start between central London and Birmingham’s Eastside district.

Enabling works packages have already awarded across the three key sections of 140-mile route.
