Speaking in the House of Commons today, Boris Johson has said that the cabinet has given HS2 the ‘green signal’.
The Prime Minister said that ‘we are going to get this done’ in his speech.
HS2 is a new rail link between London and the north. Phase 1 of the new line will see trains running between London and Birmingham, with Phase 2 seeing the new rail link head to Manchester and Leeds.
Boris Johnson has also said that new measures will be put in place to restore discipline to the programme.
A new minister will also be appointed to oversee the project full time.
‘changes to the way HS2 is managed’ are also coming, said Mr Johnson.
