Similar initiatives were introduced for the London 2012, Crossrail and Thameslink London Bridge projects.

HS2 Ltd chief executive Mark Thurston said: “Major projects like HS2 do not happen in isolation – we build on the experience and lessons learned from previous projects and rely on the wider industry to deliver. That’s why its so important that we pay back and offer the next generation the same opportunities to learn from our experience.
