The section of the HS2 line between Euston and Old Oak Common stations is a DfT Sponsor’s Requirement and as such is funded from the HS2 Phase One funding envelope. Where third parties such as local authorities and transport bodies have requests for additional requirements or scope beyond the DfT Sponsor’s Requirements, HS2 Ltd is delegated to consider incorporation of these requests, subject to an appropriate funding agreement with the relevant third parties.
