Additional Provisions for the High Speed Rail (London to West Midlands) Bill

This page chronologically details all the changes that occurred in each amendment to the High Speed Rail (London to West Midlands) Bill.

Changes to Parliamentary Bills are made in the form of an Additional Provision. This process for promoting an Additional provision is the same as for the High Speed Rail (London to West Midlands) Bill that progressed throughout parliament, and became an Act in February 2017.

This collection provides a clear timeline of how the Hybrid Bill for Phase One of High Speed Two (HS2) progressed through parliament and what documents were produced to coincide with each additional provision and supplementary environmental statement.

Phase One of HS2 is a new high speed rail network that runs from London to the West Midlands, with stops at London Euston, Old Oak Common, Birmingham Interchange and Birmingham Curzon Street. It is due to be completed in 2026, followed by Phase 2a from the West Midlands to Crewe in 2027 and the final Phase 2b stage running from Crewe to Manchester and West Midlands to Leeds being operational in 2033.

The High Speed Rail (London to West Midlands) Bill, Phase One, was subject to many changes throughout its parliamentary process. Each stage is clearly labelled to help you understand what these amendments were and what was different to the previous stage.

Additional Provision (September 2014)

The first Additional Provision in September 2014 was proposed to take account for: further discussions with landowners and occupiers; refinements to the design; and changes to accommodate the requirements of utilities providers.

Supplementary Environmental Statement 2 and Additional Provision 3 Environmental Statement (Supplementary Environmental Statement)

The Supplementary Environmental Statement 2 (SES2) reports on the likely significant environmental effects of updated environmental information, changes to the scheme assumptions and changes within the existing powers and limits of the Bill. This includes a revised design of Euston station and other design changes in the London Borough of Camden.

Please note, in the main ES, Volume 4 presented an assessment of the likely significant environmental effects that will occur in locations away from the route (i.e. outside the CFAs). As none of the SES2 design changes or AP3 amendments relate to off-route areas, off-route effects have been scoped out of the assessment. Consequently, the SES2 and AP3 ES does not contain a Volume 4.
