HS2 launches best practice sharing initiative

HS2 has launched a major new initiative to share insight from the country’s largest construction project with the wider UK infrastructure industry.

The move will see the publication of lessons learnt, good practice and innovation from across the project published regularly here.

The first tranche of Learning Legacy material includes over 100 resources covering a range of topics including Design Engineering & Architecture; Environment, Digital Engineering; Health & Safety and Occupational Health & Wellbeing.

New learning legacy papers will be published every six months and the project builds on similar initiatives at London 2012, Crossrail and Thameslink London Bridge.

HS2 Ltd Chief Executive Mark Thurston said: “Major projects like HS2 do not happen in isolation – we build on the experience and lessons learned from previous projects and rely on the wider industry to deliver. That’s why its so important that we pay back and offer the next generation the same opportunities to learn from our experience.

“Today’s launch of the HS2 Learning legacy project shows just how seriously we take that responsibility and I’d like to thank everyone who put time into sharing their insight and experience from across the design and early stages of the project.”
