HS2 – Jobs Analysis

25 June, 2013

This report into the direct and supply-chain job impacts of the High Speed Rail (HS2) project identifies the number of jobs that will be created in the planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance and renewal of HS2 across the life of the project, as well as jobs in retail and catering within the planned new stations. It is an independent analysis commissioned by the Industry Leader’s Group and developed by consultancy Albion Economics. It doesn’t consider the induced jobs in the wider economy that will be created by the wages spent by these workers, nor the broader employment effects of regeneration and economic stimulus resulting from HS2.
