HS2 could open up rail welding opportunities

With new commitments to HS2 and confirmed construction contracts totalling 6.6 billion, now is a better time than ever to gain rail a welding qualification.

The final routes have been confirmed, and it is estimated that the first stages of the construction project will create around 16,000 jobs.

The plans for HS2 aim to link the north and south of England with the first phase linking London to The West Midlands. The next part of the infrastructure will be a train line from the West Midland to Crew. The final phase will be a line from Crew to Manchester and the West Midlands to Leeds. This means that jobs on the railway will be opening up all over the country. Work is set to start on phase 1 next year, and to be completed by 2026.
