Department for Transport officials, HS2 Ltd and its contractors meet regularly with officials at the Environment Agency in relation to delivery of the HS2 works, and to ensure that any environmental risks are suitably mitigated. I also recently met with the Chair of the Environment Agency, as part of my regular engagement with the project’s key stakeholders.
