HS2 Supply Chain Opportunities
In April 2020, the Government announced that construction work could start on phase one of HS2.
This major step forward for the project will bring an estimated 400,000 supply chain contract opportunities for businesses across the UK.
Some contracts are worth up to billions of pounds, with the total amount of contracts likely to come to around £40 billion.
There will be a wide range of opportunities suitable for organisations of all types and sizes over a number of years.
