HS2 Ltd has awarded contracts that include design covering Phase 1 Main Works Civils and Phase 1 stations, and will award other contracts in due course. In all cases HS2 Ltd are seeking to ensure maximum value for money for the UK taxpayer and releasing detailing information regarding the cost estimates for these contracts may put HS2 Ltd at a commercial disadvantage and consequently it is not appropriate to release this information.

We are committed to delivering Phase 1 within the total funding envelope of £27.18bn (in 2015 prices).
