Description: HS2 will form the backbone of the UK's transport network, connecting eight out of ten of Britain's largest cities. By making it easier to move between the North, Midlands and South, cutting many journeys by half, HS2 will make it easier for people to live and work where they want.
DCA (RAG) Amber
DCA text: The Infrastructure Project Authority's Delivery Confidence Assessment rating is Amber.This is primarily due to the following factors: There has been substantial progress on the HS2 Phase 2a programme since a Red Team Review, facilitated by the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA), was held in August 2020 and HS2 Ltd were asked to do more substantial work on refining the proposal for a different delivery model than that of Phase One, centred on a Design and Delivery Partner (DDP) and smaller Main Civils Works packages. Following the last IPA Review held on the 11-14 January 2021, Phase 2a was rated as Amber. Additional engagement with IPA, Treasury and Cabinet Office led to an endorsement of the principles of the delivery model; further scrutiny is planned ahead of the release of the Invitation To Tender (ITT) for the DDP in the summer to ensure the model is as robust as possible. Phase 2a will return to MPRG in 2023 to set both the Target Cost and Target Delivery into Service in parallel to Full Business Case approval.

WLCost text: The current WLC cost status for Phase 2a is displayed as 'zero'. Assurances on Baseline 2 have now been completed and the cost range stands at £5.2bn - £7.2bn (2019 values), as agreed by MPRG and subject to Treasury approval, and is broadly consistent to those published in early 2020. The Target Cost for HS2 Ltd for Phase 2a is expected to be set in 2023. As reported in Q4 2020-21, the forecast for Phase 2a has been placed at £6bn (rounded to the nearest billion) in 2019 prices. This reported figure reported is the mid-point of a range (Point: £5bn incl. a mid-point of a range of contingencies at of £1bn). It should be noted that DfT reports in such a way in order to meet the IPA requirement of reporting a single figure for each Phase.
