About us

HS2 Ltd was set up by the Government to develop, build and operate HS2, a national high-speed railway linking London, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester, with connectivity to the existing rail network.

Who are we

High Speed 2 (HS2) Ltd is a non-departmental public body, wholly funded by the Secretary of State for Transport and sponsored by the Department for Transport.

A bespoke delivery organisation

HS2 is one of the largest and most complex infrastructure projects ever undertaken in the UK. It requires a bespoke delivery organisation to execute the planning, design and integration of the component parts of the new high-speed railway.

HS2 Ltd is responsible for procuring and bringing together a supply chain of designers and contractors to deliver billions of pounds worth of contracts, acquiring an unprecedented volume of land and property, in line with the Compensation Code, to build, maintain and operate the railway. The company must demonstrate compliance with the requisite technical, safety and environmental standards at all times.
