HS2 – Oakervee Review is released

The Department for Transport announced in August 2019 that Douglas Oakervee would chair an independent review of HS2.

The review was asked to assemble and test all the existing evidence in order to allow the Prime Minister, the Secretary of State for Transport and the government to make properly-informed decisions on the future of Phases 1 and 2 of the project, including the estimated cost and schedule position.

The review was supported by a panel of experts, representing a range of viewpoints, to ensure an independent, thorough and objective assessment.

We’ll be releasing more on this story on our website as the official government statement is released and we gather more reactions.
