At the 2015 Spending Review (SR15), the Government restated the long-term Funding Envelope for delivery of the full HS2 scheme of £55.7bn (Quarter 1 2015 prices), of which £27.18bn has been set for Phase One and £28.55bn for Phase Two.

We are determined to deliver HS2 within its total Funding Envelope of £55.7bn and have set HS2 Ltd cost targets which would deliver the programme below this amount.
