Since the HS2 property compensation schemes were introduced, the Government has spent approximately £2.3 billion up to March 2019 (nominal prices) on land and property across the three phases. This has been used to acquire and provide compensation for properties across the more than 300 mile route which is expected to generate £92.2bn (2015 prices) of transport and wider economic benefits.
