Young people in the West Midlands will play a part in the delivery of High Speed Two, Britain’s brand-new low carbon, high speed railway, thanks to an innovative partnership between Walsall College and Balfour Beatty VINCI (BBV).
On International Women in Engineering Day 2020 (Tuesday 23 June), HS2’s Head of Skills, Employment and Education, Kate Myers, calls for women and young people to play their part in helping to deliver HS2.
(Individual case studies, videos and images of female engineers working on HS2 are available in Notes to Editors).
Communities who live close to Britain’s new railway, HS2, are invited to take part in a webinar on Thursday (25 June) to find out more about the funding schemes and business opportunities available to them.
HS2 today began the search for a specialist contractor to deliver 230km of state-of-the-art telecommunications systems which will connect up the UK’s new high speed rail link between London, Birmingham and the north of England.
