In delivering the HS2 Air Quality Strategy commitments to avoid and minimise impacts from construction on local Air Quality. HS2 has set strict emission requirements for both on-and off-road vehicles and plant. HS2 aims to raise the bar on vehicle emission standards and leave a legacy for future projects, by becoming industry leaders in setting vehicle emissions standards and extending them across the country. We are determined to use the project’s scale and duration to help cut the release of harmful combustion engine emissions by stipulating contractors building Britain’s new high-speed rail network use the cleanest vehicles and machinery available. The presentation will touch on the key commitments HS2 has from an Air Quality perspective, highlighting some of the key challenges and progress to date, and provide a brief overview on some of the innovations HS2 has been involved in.
