Spending Review 2015 set a long term funding envelope of £28.55bn for Phase Two, of which £25.07bn is currently allocated to Phase 2b.

HS2 Ltd is expected to manage all elements of the Phase 2b scope from within the overall funding provision. As such, there are no separately designated budgets for different locations within the Phase 2b allocation.

The scope of Phase 2b is set out in the Phase 2b Route Decision Document, which was presented to Parliament in July 2017.
