THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will focus on the challenges for delivering HS2 Phase One and consider priorities ahead for the development of Phase Two.
Delegates will discuss key issues in constructing the route, including the on-going preparatory works and challenges for key infrastructure as well as options for managing its impact on communities and heritage woodlands, alongside the creation of a green corridor.
There will also be discussion on the next steps for planning Phase Two, following the Government announcement of a one-year delay on the Phase 2b Hybrid-Bill, including the possibility of beginning construction from the North, and the redevelopment and design of station hubs taking into account connections to existing and future rail infrastructure.
Further sessions will consider opportunities for local and regional regeneration, as well as possible further steps which might be taken to meet the needs of users of the network upon its completion.
