We want to ensure that HS2 leaves a legacy of exportable capabilities. Procurement processes have been designed in order to open up opportunities for the wider UK supply chain – the approach seeks to ensure that members of the UK railway supply chain have the opportunity to bid for and, potentially, win HS2 sub-contracts. We are, in turn, working with industry on how to support the supply chain involved in delivering HS2 to generate exports.
