Businesses encouraged to take advantage of HS2
through procurement opportunities
The company responsible for developing and promoting the UK’s new high speed rail network HS2 ‘An Engine for Growth’ have published a Contract Opportunities Table
Businesses are encouraged to visit the table, which provides an overview of contracts that have been awarded, including their status.
HS2 ‘An Engine for Growth’ will create 351 miles of new track linking London to Birmingham and Birmingham to Manchester and Leeds.
Construction is set to commence in 2017, with phase one of the project opening in 2026 and phase 2 in 2033. With a budget of £42.6bn over 20 years including £14.4bn of contingency.
In addition, HS2 will support over 100,000 jobs with estimates as high as 400,000 – with 70% of these jobs expected to be created outside of London.
During the life of the project, HS2 is committed to providing a high level of transparency for business opportunities.
The Contract Opportunities Table allows businesses to find contact details for suppliers who have been invited to tender for, or have been awarded contracts with HS2.
Businesses seeking opportunities to become part of the HS2 supply chain will be able to engage early with HS2’s direct contractors and prepare for the likely indirect opportunities each contract will provide.
HS2 will be regularly updating this page of their website and we therefore encourage interested businesses to revisit it regularly.
