To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will publish an estimate of the costs to the economy of the closures of Euston station due to High Speed Two preparations.
12 February 2019
The Department does not hold any estimate of the cost to the economy of these planned engineering works. The implementation of the HS2 Phase One works have been designed to reduce as far as reasonably practical the disruption to rail services and passengers at Euston. Network Rail are planning to undertake some engineering works as part of the HS2 preparations that will require short closures of Euston Station. Where possible these short closures, which typically occur at weekends or bank holidays, are planned to coincide with wider Network Rail planned engineering works, for which the station would already need to be closed.
