To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether he has assessed HS2 Ltd’s design standards for temporary and permanent changes to on-and off-road highway infrastructure against (a) Transport for London’s London cycling design standards and (b) the Welsh Government’s Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 design standards.

HS2 Ltd’s contractors are required to comply with HS2’s technical standards during the design of all works associated with the HS2 programme. HS2’s Technical Standard for Roads specifically refers to Transport for London's London Cycle Design Standards and the Welsh Government's Design Guidance: Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013. HS2 Ltd’s technical standards also include good design practice guidance from other established industry design standards.
