CCC attended the HS2 Supplier Road Show at the World Museum Liverpool yesterday!
There was a strong turn out from potential suppliers from across the North West yesterday. HS2 , as we know, isn’t coming to Liverpool directly but the project will include an upgrade to Liverpool Lime Street station and improvements to the rail line between here and Crewe, so we can take the new HS2 trains. Once trains arrive at Crewe they will then be able to pick up the new line and be in London Euston in half the current time.
This is the biggest construction project in the UK in the last 25 years and the government has set a target on its tier 1 contractors to use SMEs on 60% of its subcontracted supply and works. Which means a great opportunity in the years to come. Watch this space!!!
