High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) Bill

Provides information on the HS2 hybrid Bill progressing through Parliament for Phase One of the project between London and the West Midlands.

On 25 November 2013, the government deposited a hybrid Bill with Parliament to secure the powers to construct and maintain Phase One of HS2 between London and the West Midlands. The Bill is titled ‘High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) Bill’.

The Bill will grant the powers to construct Phase One of the HS2 network, but will also grant powers to:

  • build and maintain HS2 and its associated works
  • compulsorily acquire interests in the land required
  • affect or change rights of way, including the stopping-up or diversion of highways and waterways (permanently or temporarily)
  • modify infrastructure belonging to statutory undertakers (e.g. utility companies)
  • carry out work on listed buildings and demolish buildings in conservation areas; and
  • carry out protective works to buildings and third-party infrastructure.

It will also grant the necessary changes to existing legislation to facilitate construction and operation of Phase One of HS2.
