Does the UK have the skills to deliver HS2?
Confidence in the rail sector is higher than ever. HS2 is signed off, Crossrail has been successfully delivered and future funding for transport has been promised. However, with Brexit on the cards, an ever growing skills-shortage within the UK engineering industry and a need for technologically advanced engineers who can move with the new advancements required, does the UK have what it takes to deliver all that the HS2 project requires?
Two of our in-house industry experts – Graham Day, department manager of rail, and Tim Carling, director of engineering technology – share their thoughts in an article in the transport issue of current affairs and politics magazine New Statesman.
