The construction period for Phase 2b of HS2 is 9 years, from 2024 to 2033. No detailed work has been done to look into the construction planning for stations that would be served by HS2 trains. During design of the scheme over next two years, and before the hybrid Bill is deposited, HS2 Ltd will make an estimate of the construction timescales for various elements of the programme.

We do not provide cost breakdowns for specific items of the HS2 programme due to commercial sensitivities.
