CONTRACTS worth millions of pounds are on offer to firms from Warwickshire to help deliver HS2.

The Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce has been keeping watch over the latest developments related to HS2 and is trying to inform their members with information on the latest the opportunities within the supply chain to deliver the project.

A portal detailing the contracts that are available and the main contractors to liaise with has been released and is available at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/hs2-contract-opportunities

The Chamber is also discussing the possibility of holding local supply chain events to allow companies to meet representatives from HS2 and main contractors involved in the project.




Louise Bennett, chief executive of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce said: “HS2 will be one of the biggest infrastructure projects in the UK for decades and while there has been a great deal of debate around it, it’s vitally important that Coventry and Warwickshire companies are given the opportunity to apply for contracts.

“We are also hoping to hold events with HS2 and several of their main contractors to help facilitate face-to-face discussions for our members.”


Chamber staff are urging their members in construction and engineering to log onto the portal to see if there are opportunities that would suit them.

Louise added: “We launched our Go For Growth 16 campaign at the start of this year and that is designed to help remove some of the hurdles to companies across our patch being able to expand.

“But when opportunities such as this come along where we can help bring local businesses together with larger suppliers for the benefit of the individual companies, as well as the wider economy, that’s exactly what we will do.”
