The Department for Transport announced that the Independent Construction Commissioner, Sir Mark Worthington has seen his role extended and will now oversee the HS2 Phase 2a route from West Midlands to Crewe, as well as Phase 1. This effort, to improve the accountability of the project, will mean that homeowners and businesses affected by it will have access to clear, impartial advice and allow strong scrutiny. Sir Mark Worthington will now have responsibility for managing issues and relationships between HS2 Ltd and individuals or bodies relating to construction work on both Phase One, from London to Birmingham, and Phase 2a, West Midlands to Crewe. He will work to improve engagement between building contractors and local communities and focus on resolving complains and providing advice to the public on how they can raise concerns with HS2 Ltd.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
