For High Speed Two Ltd, the joint venture contracts involving Carillion were on joint and several liability terms where the contracts are underwritten by all three parties.

This means that the other parties to the contract are obliged to carry out the works in Carillion’s absence.

The transition to a two party joint venture involving Eiffage and Kier has now concluded, and there have been no impacts to delivery.

Does this answer the above question?
