HS2 has announced the formal start of construction of the high-speed rail line between London and the West Midlands, which it claims will create 22,000 jobs.
It is an article featuring in several of the national newspapers, including The Guardian that says Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to attend a ceremonial launch today.
The contracts to build the first phase of the line, including viaducts, tunnels and stations at Euston and Old Oak Common, were signed off by the Treasury during lockdown.
The article says that HS2’s main works contractor for the West Midlands, a Balfour Beatty-Vinci joint venture, is looking for up to 7,000 skilled workers over the next two years.
