HS2 reports underspend on ground investigation

Investment in surveying and ground investigation for HS2 was £8.6M below expected levels between April 2016 and February 2017, according to the latest high speed rail expenditure report.

The report shows that expenditure on ground investigation was 15% below expected levels at £56.6M.

According to the report, this underspend was due to “being able to agree a lower number of access agreements than was required to conduct the planned environmental surveys”. This had impacted on the number of surveys completed during the period and the timetable for remaining surveys has been rescheduled for the current year.
