HS2 Ltd is currently undertaking design and construction planning at Euston Station to confirm the quantities of excavated material that will be required to be removed.

The High Speed Rail (London to West Midlands) Act 2017 lays out how the excavated material will be removed by road. HS2 Ltd is committed to remaining within the Environmental Minimum Requirements as laid out in the Bill.

HS2 Ltd is also required by the Secretary of State to investigate the potential for removing material by rail from Euston Station, to be implemented if the impact on the HS2 programme can be mitigated. HS2 Ltd will report its findings to the DfT in due course.
