Full steam ahead as HS2 receives Royal Assent



Britain’s second dedicated high-speed railway line sped ever closer to construction on Thursday, with the bill giving HS2 the go-ahead receiving Royal Assent.

The Department for Transport said construction would now begin on schedule in the spring.

Alongside assent, Thursday saw the launch of schemes totalling £70m for communities along the route between Birmingham and London.

As a result of HS2 and at a regional level, Oxfordshire will get £15m to help enhance community facilities, improve access to the countryside, conserve the natural environment and support local economies in areas where businesses may experience disruption from the construction of HS2.
