The largest rail infrastructure project over the next two decades is set to be the development of the national high speed rail network HS2. The hybrid bill, effectively the planning permission for the first phase of HS2, received Royal Assent in February 2017. Major enabling works contracts for the project were already awarded in 2016, while some £11.8 billion worth of civils contracts are due to be awarded in the early summer. A hybrid bill for phase 2b of HS2 (Crewe to Manchester and West Midlands to Leeds) is to be presented to parliament in 2019.
