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 text: The Infrastructure Project Authority's Delivery Confidence Assessment rating is Red.This is primarily due to the following factors: The DfT support the DCA rating of Red. Subject to the Integrated Rail Plan (IRP) the Western Leg bill is being prepared for deposit for early 2022 or earlier if possible. Alongside the Bill the Outline Business Case will also be published. This will set out an update on the schedule and cost of the programme. Decisions on the design and schedule of the Eastern Leg (West Midlands to Leeds) will also be made as part of the Integrated Rail Plan, though any delay to publication could affect the restart of work on the Eastern Leg.
Start date 2016-11-27
End date 2040-12-31
Schedule text The project end-date is 31 December 2040. This is primarily due to the following factors: Subject to the outcome of the Integrated Rail Plan (IRP), preparations are underway for a hybrid Bill for the Western Leg (Crewe to Manchester) and supporting Outline Business Case (OBC) to be deposited in Parliament in early 2022, or sooner if possible. Owing to the close interface with IRP, any delay to the publication could affect the timings of works required for the Bill deposit. Further updates on schedule will be provided at the time the Outline Business Case is published.

WLCost text: The current Whole Life Costs (WLC) cost status for Phase 2b is displayed as 'zero'. Validation of the Phase 2b cost range and baseline is ongoing and will be updated to support the bringing forward of separate legislation for the HS2 route into Manchester. The emerging cost range for Phase 2b, however, (including contingency) continues to be reported as £32bn - £46bn in 2019 prices. In Q4 2020-21, the estimate for Phase 2b was placed at £39bn (rounded to the nearest billion) in 2019 prices. It should be recognised that this figure is the mid-point of a range between point estimate and upper range of contingency. DfT reports in such a way in order to meet the Infrastructure Projects Authority (IPA) requirement of reporting a single figure for each Phase. DfT does not report on the Whole Life Costs of the project as they do not reflect the true up-front capital costs of building the railway.
