The Railway Industry Association, the voice of the UK rail supply community, has welcomed the HS2 Bill, extending the high speed line from Crewe to Manchester, being laid before Parliament.

Darren Caplan, Chief Executive of the Railway Industry Association, said: “It is encouraging to see the bill for HS2’s Western Leg deposited in Parliament today. Rail businesses up and down the country stand ready to support this transformational project, supporting jobs and investment whilst delivering a new sustainable railway for the nation.

“Of course, this development should be accompanied by a commitment to deliver the HS2 Eastern Leg too - only by delivering the full scheme will all the benefits of HS2 be realised. So we continue to urge the Government to develop the Birmingham to Leeds stretch of HS2 at the same time as pushing on with the Western Leg to Manchester.”
