Research and Markets: HS2 Construction Programme Market Report - UK 2012-2016 Analysis

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6vtd9x/hs2_construction) has announced the addition of the "HS2 Construction Programme Market Report - UK 2012-2016 Analysis" report to their offering.

AMA Research are pleased to announce the publication of the 1st Edition of a new report: HS2 Construction Programme Market Report - UK 2012-2032 Analysis, the first phase of which has been approved by the Government. The report should be of particular interest to consultants, construction companies and their supply chains operating in the Rail sector.

High Speed 2 (HS2) is a 20-year scheme to deliver hugely enhanced rail capacity and connectivity between Britain's major cities. It is the largest transport infrastructure investment in the UK for a generation and, with the exception of High Speed 1 (HS1), is the first major new railway line since the Victorian era.

The HS2 Y network will provide direct, high capacity, high speed links between London, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester, with intermediate stations in the East Midlands and South Yorkshire. There will also be direct links to Heathrow Airport and to the Continent via the HS1 line.

The capital cost at 2011 prices of building the complete Y network is estimated to be around £32.7bn. At present values, it is claimed that it will generate benefits of up to £47bn and fare revenues of up to £34bn over a 60-year period.

In January 2012, the Transport Secretary, decided to proceed with the recommended Phase 1 route for the London to West Midlands line and high level route recommendations for the wider Y network to Leeds and Manchester, with connections to points further north via the existing East and West Coast main lines. This followed a public consultation on the proposals, between February and July 2011.

HS2 Ltd, the DfT-owned organisation that is developing and promoting HS2 on behalf of the Government, is now starting to move forward with the first phase of the project and begin the next stage of engineering, design and environmental work. A hybrid bill, which will provide the powers to construct the London-West Midlands line and will also continue to work on proposals for the line of route to Leeds and Manchester, will be delivered in Parliament by the end of 2013 and is expected to receive royal assent in 2015.

Despite widespread opposition to HS2, the programme does indicate a strong commitment from the Government that it will invest in infrastructure to strengthen construction growth over the long term.
