HS2 railway, UK–the hybrid bill

Published on Print this document

The hybrid bill for the London-to-West Midlands phase of the UK’s High Speed Two (HS2) high-speed railway weighed half a tonne, and was the largest ever deposited in parliament. Preparation, to strict requirements of parliament’s standing orders, took 22 months, using a large part of the country’s engineering and environmental resources, and was completed to time and on budget.
