HS2 briefing for Welsh companies

22 Jun 15 Welsh construction suppliers are meeting this week to learn about business opportunities presented by the HS2 high speed rail project.

High Speed Two Ltd and representatives from the Welsh government will be Cardiff City Football Club on 25th June to speak to around 100 Welsh businesses about how to bid for £10bn worth of contracts on the HS2 project.

Work on the first phase of the project is scheduled to start in 2017 and, at the peak of construction more than 40,000 people are expected to be working on the scheme.

HS2 Ltd commercial director Beth West said: “Building HS2 is a massive long-term project, one that offers a huge opportunity for Welsh businesses to bid for £10bn worth of contracts, boosting jobs and skills across the country.

“To deliver a project of HS2’s scale and complexity we are committed to working with Welsh companies. I am extremely pleased that so many Welsh firms have already shown an interest in helping to deliver HS2 and I would encourage all businesses large or small to get involved.”

Tickets can be applied for through the Business Wales Events website.
