Following contract award, the Main Works contractors will be in place later this year. As designs mature, the programme of works will be developed, culminating in a detailed programme being available by the end of 2018.

Programmes are currently being developed for individual localised Enabling Works packages such as habitat creations, site clearance and highway improvements in preparation for the Main Works. HS2 Ltd will be meeting my Right Hon. Friend on 27 March to provide an update on the works within the Chiltern area and the process for developing the programme.
