HS2 in the Queen's Speech

May 2013

rural consultancy news

Two pieces of legislation were announced in the Queen’s speech yesterday paving the way for development of HS2.

The High Speed Rail (preparation) Bill will give parliamentary authorisation for the government to spend the money needed to build the new rail link between London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds. The bill will allow the government to pay for preparatory work such as ecological surveys and ground investigations which are needed before construction can begin. The government needs to pass this legislation before it can pass the High Speed Two Hybrid Bill. 
 
The High Speed Two Hybrid Bill will give the government the legal compulsory purchase powers to buy the land needed to build the proposed HS2 rail link.
 
Those affected by the bill will have the opportunity to petition Parliament and have their case heard by the bill select committee.
