Details

In October 2013 Department for Transport published ‘The strategic case for HS2’ which provides a comprehensive explanation of the case for HS2.

These documents were developed alongside the strategic case in 2013. They provide further detail and support for the strategic case.

Economic case

The ‘Economic case’ sets out our economic assessment of HS2 and demonstrates that it represents value for money. It also compares the assessment of HS2 with our economic assessment of potential alternatives.

Financial case

The ‘Financial case’ demonstrates that HS2 is affordable. It sets out the funding arrangements for the project and long-term funding envelope for both phases of construction and for rolling stock, including significant contingency.

Commercial case

The ‘Commercial case’ sets out the commercial viability of HS2 and our developing procurement and delivery strategies.

Management case

The ‘Management case’ sets out how the HS2 programme is being managed and describes the organisational, governance, assurance and control framework within which the programme operates.

The capacity on north-south main lines

‘The capacity on north south main lines’ is a technical report from Steer Davies Gleave to the Department for Transport. It presents analysis used in the strategic case.
