The cost of HS2 jobs

leave a comment »

Two thousand apprenticeships are to be created from the £6.6 billion worth of ‘line of route’ construction contracts for HS2 Phase One announced today (17 July 2017).

But how many jobs are to be created from Phase One construction?

All the press release says is that “16,000 jobs will be supported over the next six years”.

So, ~£68,000 per ‘supported’ job-year.

And how many of the ‘jobs’ would go to UK nationals?

gov_uk press release, 'First big HS2 contracts to build Britain's new railway will support 16000 jobs'
