Morgan Sindall Group plc, the construction and regeneration group, is pleased to announce that its Construction & Infrastructure division, in joint venture, has been awarded the Central Enabling Works Contract for High Speed Two (HS2).

John Morgan, Chief Executive of Morgan Sindall Group, commented:

“Morgan Sindall Group has proven expertise in delivering complex infrastructure projects and we are delighted to be chosen by HS2 as a trusted partner on this historic scheme.”
